Connacht Gold recently held a regional art competition for primary schools with the aim of celebrating imagination and creativity while promoting the benefits of drinking dairy over sugar-sweetened alternatives.
The overall winner of the Junior Infant to 1st class age category was Lucia McDonnell from Ballyfeeney National School in Scramogue, Co. Roscommon. Her beautiful, colourful and eye-catching poster really captured the theme ‘Rethink your drink’ as she incorporated the benefits of dairy into her artwork. As a part of her prize, Lucia won a visit from the Aurivo Consumer Foods team to her school for a presentation about healthy eating and her entire class will enjoy a visit to Dublin Zoo.
The presentation took place last week and it saw the children learn about the benefits of eating a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise as well as the importance of dairy for growing children. There was a life-size Connacht Gold milk carton on hand that the children could get a photo with. Each of the pupils in Lucia’s class were given a carton of Connacht Gold to enjoy.
