The finalists were picked after judges from Unilever Food Solutions and The Children’s Food Trust reviewed paper entries. Recipes had to contain at least 50% fruit in line with School Food Standards in England.

Allyson Norris, catering assistant at Mellors Catering Services produced a recipe for her very own Summer Fruit Slice which impressed the judges enough to put her through the finals taking place on the 6th July at the LACA Main Event.
