A Tywyn schoolgirl has been crowned the winner of a healthy eating competition by former Wales international footballer Owain Tudur Jones.
Anaé Angood, aged 10 from Ysgol Penybryn, received her chef’s hat from the retired midfielder during a cookery masterclass with TV chef Elwen Roberts.
The lesson was enjoyed by 60 pupils from Years 5 and 6 at Ysgol Penybryn and formed part of Anaé’s prize for creating a menu of five nutritious school dinners and explaining why eating a healthy balanced diet is important.
The competition was launched by Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales in collaboration with Urdd Gobaith Cymru’s children’s magazines, Cip and Bore Da.
HCC’s Elwen Roberts, who co-judged over 120 excellent competition entries and led the school session, was impressed by Anaé’s menu.
She said: “The winner presented a balanced menu of interesting and appetizing main meals.
“They ranged from Welsh lamb kebabs with flatbread, riata and salad to Welsh beef meatballs served with quinoa and green veg, and a dish of gnocchi with a carbonara sauce, sprinkled with bacon.
“The meals showed sophistication and originality and also demonstrated the flexibility of red meat."
Anaé also received a goody bag of cookery equipment worth £150.
