Each school had two Grade 4 Junior chefs in the My Healthy Plate Competition, a program designed to teach children to make healthy meal choices.

Having learnt about food groups and proportion sizes in the second term, (January – April) students had to prepare a pre-made healthy snack which was judged on competition day and take part in a live cooking competition.

The young chefs prepared a wide array of dishes that were professionally presented.

The My Healthy Plate campaign targets grade 4 students and repeats each term with the same students over three years. According to information disseminated, each term, a new topic will be covered. Officials are proposing to monitor how students body mass index (BMI) changes over three years.
