Boston youngsters were given food for thought when they took part in a challenge to create a cheap and tasty family meal.
Children from Boston High School and St Mary’s School in the town were tasked with coming up with a nutritious and delicious menu which all the family would enjoy. The groups teamed up with their parents for the big event and their efforts were judged by a panel. Teams had just one hour to create their dish. The lucky winner was nine-year-old Ellie Goodfellow and her mum Tracey, who wowed the judges with their spicy chicken dish. The competition was part of an initiative by the People’s Health Trust, which is funded by the Health Lottery. It was run by Discover Volunteering CIC in Lincolnshire. Director Pete Read said: “The competition was a great success and the judges commented on the outstanding standard of meals cooked.” The recipes will now be included in a special Food For Thought leaflet, which is available to buy from St Mary’s School in Ashlawn Drive. All proceeds from the sale of the leaflet will go towards the continuation of this and similar projects.
