UAK said “On yer bike!” to unhealthy food this week with the great Smoothie Challenge

This week, students from University Academy Kidsgrove (UAK) were lining up to use a specially adapted bicycle which transformed pedal power into delicious and tasty smoothies.

The bike was provided by Catering Academy to highlight the importance of exercise and a healthy balanced diet.  The students got to choose their ingredients from a range of delicious fruits and yoghurts which were then placed into a blender.

The blender was then fitted onto the special bicycle.  After a vigorous bout of pedalling the ingredients transformed into a healthy and delicious drink.  One Year 9 student said: “It’s even more delicious because I earned it!”

Take a look at some of the photographs from the day.
