BIRKENSHAW Kindergarten is enjoying success on a plate after being given a gold healthy choice award.

The kindergarten in Old Lane received the award from Kirklees Council after fulfilling stringent hygiene and nutrition criteria.

Manager Rachel Galbraith said: “The award is for the highest standard of food hygiene and healthy food options, and we’re absolutely delighted to have got the gold.

“Our cook, Ann Hopkins, is always keen to serve varied, delicious and healthy meals. A typical day’s menu might begin with cereal, a mid-morning snack of fruit, a dinner of salmon and cod pie and peas followed by orange sponge pudding, with a tea of scrambled eggs on toast or cheese cheese and ham pitta bread toasties with salad.”
