Bingley Grammar School

Healthy Eating Week


Next week it is the British Nutrition Foundations annual Healthy Eating Week.

To promote the week and highlight healthy eating and nutrition in school Mrs Wilkinson and the Food Technology department will be running various delicious events!

House Competition for Yr 7 and Yr 8

Each Form group has been asked to nominate one class member to create and cook a ‘grab and go’ food product which is nutritionally balanced and reflects the Eat Well plate. The cooks need to hand in their recipe (on the provided sheet) to Mrs Wilkinson by Friday (10th June) and the competition will take place next Monday (13th June) at 2:00pm in T14 and T15.

The winning creation will then be served in the canteen at break time for a week!

Smoothie Bar

Next Monday students in the Food department will be running a smoothie bar for Yr 7 and Yr 8 at break time in T15. There will also be the opportunity to taste some exotic fruits. Come along and try some delicious healthy flavours!

Staff Challenge

To make this a whole community event our staff have also been set a challenge to create a healthy meal at home and take a photo of it adding an explanation of why it is their favourite. Mrs Wilkinson will be displaying the best photos and hopefully inspiring students and staff to try these dishes at home.

And the fun doesn't stop there because at the end of term the Food department will be running 3 days of events in conjunction with the RE department – look out for more information on these events soon!
