A number of Primary Schools in Blackburn with Darwen have been accredited with the newly branded Recipe 4 Health Awards.

Cllr Julie Gunn, Executive member for Children, Young People, and Education, presented all the primary schools in attendance with the certificates, which were marked as Bronze, Silver, or Gold.

The Recipe 4 Health awards scheme, run by Blackburn with Darwen Council, is in partnership with Lancashire County Council and recognises the schools, local businesses, and nurseries that provide healthier food choices to those they cater for.

The ceremony at King Georges Hall was centred upon the achievements of the primary schools in the borough that have continued to provide healthy meals.

The awards also hosted informative talks and activities on healthy living and school food policies, with Food Active and AP Smilecare presenting and Blackburn Rovers hosting fun activities such as Sugar Quizzes and showcasing the GULP (Give up loving pop) Campaign.

Cllr Jackie Floyd, the chair of the Blackburn and Darwen Food Alliance, was at the awards, and said:

‘The Recipe 4 Health scheme remains one of our major initiatives to promote healthy eating and food choices throughout the borough. I want to congratulate everyone who has received the awards, they should all be commended for increasing their healthier options.’

The primary schools which were unable to attend the awards will be receiving their certificates by post.
