 WINNERS ANNOUNCED

'Healthy Packed Lunch Plot'

 Please click the links below to find out who the winners are in your category!


Growing Communities invited all children in primary schools, special schools and community groups of Essex to take part in designing a healthy kitchen garden plot and also create a recipe for a healthy packed lunch using the produce.

The children were asked to think about the vegetables, fruit and herbs that could easily be grown at school or at home and when harvested could be used to make the perfect healthy packed lunch.  The 'dish' could be sweet or savoury but had to include the produce from the plot. Additional ingredients could also have been used for example: pasta, rice, bread, couscous, meat, fish or chicken and not forgetting some seasoning!

We wanted to hear some exciting and new ideas for lunches, and asked that the children to put a twist on the usual packed lunch and create an explosion for the taste buds!
