Belling rewards Cookery Club competition winners
GDHA brand Belling has announced the winners of its first Cookery Club competition and presented each with £2,000 worth of cooking appliances.
Belling Cookery Club was launched to support primary schools, many of which don’t have the facilities to deliver practical cookery experiences, despite cooking and nutrition now forming part of the curriculum in the UK.
Timbercroft Primary School in Plumstead, London and Shawhead Primary School in Shawhead, Dumfries, Scotland were amongst dozens of schools that took part in the national competition. Pupils were asked to design a healthy meal, explain its nutritional value and draw a picture of it.
The Shawhead pupils (pictured) wrote and performed a rap – or ‘Wrap’ – to describe why they liked the food in their meal, while the Year One class at Timbercroft drew pictures of a healthy meal. One pupil, Zahraa Malik, went a step further by creating an artistic 3D picture of her meal using dried pasta and coloured squares.
Jane Rylands, Head of Marketing Communications at Belling, said: “Only an estimated 25% of primary schools have a teaching kitchen or facilities and we at Belling believe that all children should be able to cook at school. We were delighted with the response to the competition – we received thousands of votes for the ten shortlisted entries and these two schools really stood out.”
