Due to the holiday weekend and our show performances we have no homework for the next 2 weeks 🙂
However, for those keen beans out there here is an (optional) exciting task that can be completed if you wish!
Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Scotland are delighted to work with Brakes Scotland to launch the 2019 Braw Lunch Brake Challenge with partners, Royal Highland Education Trust, ASSIST FM, Education Scotland, Skills Development Scotland and Developing Young Workforce.
This competition is open to all P5, 6 and 7 pupils across Scotland. FDF are looking for the industry stars of the future.
We would like pupils to develop an innovative, healthy dish that includes local Scottish produce that would appeal to them and their fellow pupils?
The winning entrant from each stage will then be asked to prepare their healthy dish and serve it to the Leadership Team on Wednesday 8 May 2019. The winning dish will then be submitted to the national competition.
Why are we participating in this competition?
By participating in this activity food education in school will be enhanced through:
- Encouraging greater understanding of the food chain from field to fork and sea to plate
- Supporting educated food choices
- Developing an understanding of the real world of work and how businesses operate and the skills required by employers
And it may spark an interest for their future career.
