Winning pupils from Walliscote and Windwhistle primary schools received an invite to the Grand Pier in Weston before the half-term holiday.

More than 100 entries were submitted and pupils entering the competition were asked to draw or write about their favourite foods to eat.

The winner from each school also received an additional invite for the rest of their class.

Windwhistle’s winning entry was called My Favourite Meal and Walliscote’s winner designed a new menu for the pier.

The pier’s head chef Jeff Milliner said: “I was very impressed with the creativity shown by the children.

“I hope they all enjoyed their winners’ dinner here 
at the Grand Pier and they will want to come back for more.”

The competition was launched in March as part of International School Meals day which works to promote good nutrition for children across the globe.
