Our project moved further forward with an activity led by Senior IV Home Economics students who presented their ideas on Healthy Packed Lunches on the two Parent Days of the 25th and 26th November, 2015. You will find the recipes here: http://weeatresponsibly.weebly.com/our-glorious-recipes.html
Under the supervision of Ms Pauline Dalli, Teacher of Home Economics, the students designed and prepared their recipes with strict guidelines on ingredients they could use. They adapted some well known recipes to make them more nutritious; for example they used wholemeal flour instead of white flour.
Parents, staff and students all tucked in. The food seemed to be a great success. You know what they say: the proof of the pudding is in the eating!
On these two Parent Days, we also participated in the European Week of Waste Reduction which ran from the 21st November to the 29th November. We displayed some important statistics on food waste and also some practical suggestions on how to reduce it. We also projected Pope Francis's video message for the Campaign Against Global Hunger launched by CARITAS in December 2013 on the ethical implications of people in the developed world throwing away food, while others, in developing countries, go without.
