Presented to an educational establishment in the UK that can demonstrate a commitment to healthy eating and value for money through the provision of a first class catering service available to all students.

2016 Winner
Ballard School, Hampshire

Ballard School ensures that healthy eating is key to school curriculum. Innovative chefs provide a vast and well prepared menu, with unhealthy foods, such as those that were fried or baked, disappearing from school plates. The school also implemented a ‘Healthy Eating Working Group’, ensuring the topic remains on the agenda, and recently supported Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day among other worthwhile initiatives.
