PUPILS from Haselor have taken a 'megabyte' out of the competition as their cooking blog has come out on top in a national contest.

Their winning submission described how school cook Clair Hooper provided a freshly prepared, seasonal and tasty lunch for pupils and the local community as part of the Food for Life Partnership's (FFLP) annual Roast Dinner Day which took place in November last year.

The school received a VegTrug, a self-contained raised vegetable garden, that will provide further inspiration to the school, encouraging pupils to learn to love growing.

Head teacher Gill Humphriss said: “We are delighted with the VegTrug which will enhance outdoor learning for the children. We are a school that is committed to developing children's experiences and we are looking forward to continuing to work closely with the Food for Life Partnership so that the children of today become the champions of healthy eating tomorrow."

The FFLP is one of the organisations backing the School Food Plan, an agreed plan which aims to help head teachers and caterers improve food in their schools.
