Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Time for a Balanced Snack

Last Friday, Doves and Bullfinches were invited to a Roots to Food Cooking Challenge where we learned about cooking for a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

When the classes arrived, we were informed about the food pyramid and all of the different types of vitamins and minerals that each part of the pyramid covers. We were quizzed about the different foods that fall under each of the sections.

Then the teams were chosen…

From Doves, Makilthini was chosen to be a part of the Orange Team.

From Bullfinches, Aleena was chosen to be a part of the Green Team.

Each team had to develop a healthy meal that uses all of the four sections of the balanced food pyramid. They were given different ingredients and had to choose a theme for each of their meals. The Orange team decided to choose a Spanish inspired dish where they would have a double cooked chicken with mozzarella cheese and a spring salad. The Green team was going to be making a mild salmon based curry with seasoned rice.




After 15 minutes of cooking and plating, the teams created amazing dishes that not only looked good, but also tasted good.



Several pupils were chosen from all of KS2 to taste test the creations and to judge which team did better.

After the testing, it was a unanimous vote for which team had the better creation. The Green Team’s Salmon Curry was triumphant.

Congratulations to both teams for creating some amazing dishes that looked good, smelled good and tasted good.
