A Bexley primary school pupil has nabbed a top prize at the Perfect Packed Lunch Awards.

East Wickham Primary School Shani Davis,11 scooped first prize in the Princess category of the art and creative writing competition.

Hundreds of contestants battled it out for first prize, each having to design the perfect lunch box meal for a real or imaginary character and write about what made their creation so special.

Shani created a lunch box for Ariel from The Little Mermaid which featured exotic fish for strength, shrimps for tail power and lobsters for maintaining long hair.

The competition took place at The Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in Canterbury, was staged by School Inspiration Services, Three R’s teacher recruitment, Golding Vision, Kent Libraries and Wellbeing People.

Sophia Page, from Wellbeing People, said: “We want to empower children – especially younger children – around their health and wellbeing and this is a brilliant initiative to do so”.

Next year’s competition will be open soon for entry at: www.perfectpackedlunch.org.uk
