Pupils design healthy new foods in national competition

Pupils from Queens Park Academy, St Bede’s Catholic Primary School and Greet Primary School were runners-up in the ‘Design a Healthy New Food’ competition, organised by Discovery Education and Switzerland’s Alimentarium Foundation.

Open to primary schools across the UK, the competition asked pupils to design a nutritious food, meal or snack, and create a fun advert to promote it.

Christine Major, Director of Educational Partnerships at Discovery Education said:

It’s never been more important to educate children about nutrition, and to help them make healthy choices. We were really impressed with the calibre of competition entries and especially the creativity of Aliza’s entry. We hope that our partnership with the Alimentarium Food Museum will ignite children’s interest in the science of eating and bring nutrition to life in a fun and accessible way.

The competition was launched as part of a 3-year partnership between Discovery Education and Switzerland’s Alimentarium Foundation, delivering nutrition resources to primary schools across the country via Discovery Education Espresso’s award-winning digital learning service. Exciting new content launching this year will help children to learn about food sustainability and the environment.
