School caterers urged to enter Tilda Together School Sports Day Competition

The Tilda Together competition is back, and this year schools will have the opportunity to win £500 and a sports day with international athlete Jess Coulson.

The Tilda Together campaign focuses on the importance that sports and nutrition play in maintaining healthy bodies and healthy minds.

Open to both primary and secondary schools, the Tilda Together School Sports Day Competition will see one winner receive a sports day hosted at their school by Jess Coulson, British half-marathon champion 2015 and English 10,000m champion 2015, as well as £500 in cash.

In addition, dietician Dr Sarah Schenker will hold a talk on nutrition alongside a fun cooking session, providing an opportunity for pupils to sample simple recipes that demonstrate how easy it can be to bring taste and nutrition together.

Tilda will also provide the winning school with a 25kg supply of Tilda Brown & White Rice and organise local PR, raising awareness of the event. Tilda Brown & White Rice is a 50:50 mix of wholegrain and white rice, is naturally gluten-free, has 30% lower GI than standard white rice, and is the blend recommended by the School Food Standards.

Every school that enters the competition will receive a free 1kg bag of Tilda Brown & White Rice and a recipe book with hints and tips on helping caterers cook perfect rice, while tackling portion control and reducing wastage.

Caterers can enter the Tilda Together School Sports Day competition via the Tilda website.

Craig Dillon, head of foodservice at Tilda, said: "We had such an overwhelming response to our last campaign that we wanted to build on this success and raise the bar even higher. By bringing in a sporting element, we hope to hit home that message that good nutrition combined with physical exercise will keep children energised and motivated while supporting their ability to learn."
