Pupils Pass Healthy Food Test

A Haverfordwest pupil has won a prize for her knowledge about healthy food.

Megan Ryan, a pupil at Mary Immaculate School, won the Murco sponsored quiz at this year's Grow It Cook It Eat it Event.

The nine-year old was presented with £20 worth of vouchers at a recent Assembly at the school. The school also received £100 worth of vouchers from Murco.

The popular food initiative - Grow It Cook It Eat It - aims to take youngsters through the farm-to-fork process of food.

The annual event teaches school children the importance of healthy eating and knowledge of local produce through talks and fun, interactive workshops.

Meanwhile another Mary Immaculate pupil has also displayed a keen knowledge of healthy food recently.

Georgina Norman won the Letter Trail competition at the Haverfordwest Farmers Market Harvest Fayre last month. The 10 year-old won a food hamper for her efforts.
