A Future in Food

School food
One school's involvement with the national A Future in Food programme has set their pupils on an inspiring journey into the world of work. Moira Stalker explains.

Milky Twist: Loaded with Mooberries is the milk-based smoothie made with blueberries and ice-cream impressively designed, developed and marketed by an S3 class of pupils at Eastbank Academy in Glasgow. 

It is also the outcome of a successful programme partnering businesses with schools to deliver key skills as part of the curriculum. 

The partnership was brokered through the A Future in Food schools programme. Run by the Scottish Food and Drink Federation (SFDF), A Future in Food aims to promote career opportunities in the food and drink industry by encouraging employers to work with schools to deliver the curriculum using food as the context for learning.
