The International School Bake Off 2015

Carterknowle School Nutrition Action Group – The ‘Tooty Fruities’ regularly meet up to learn more about food and nutrition and discuss its opinion of school meals provided by Taylor Shaw. They have recently reviewed the new School Food Standards and decided they wanted to help Taylor Shaw develop more creative desserts containing 50% Fruit. To gain ideas from across the globe so we are running an International School Bake Off competition alongside a school in Pakistan and the USA!
