Nathan Gerring of Tunbridge Wells Nursery and Montessori pre-school has been showing off his baking skills in the ‘Healthy Biscuit, Happy Me’ grand final.
The pre-school room manager was highly praised for his Viennese whirl biscuit by judges from the Soil Association, Burton’s Biscuits and Busy Bees.
Staff, children and parents from Busy Bees nurseries across the country were invited to create a sweet or savoury biscuit along with an explanation of why it is healthy.
Mr Gerring said: “All of the creations looked and tasted fantastic so it must have been a tough decision for the judges. I feel privileged to be considered by such a well-respected company as Burton’s Biscuits.
“The whole process has been enjoyable for everyone, especially the children. We thought it was considerably important that they played a part in designing the biscuit.
“Although I didn’t win the competition, I still had a fantastic day with the other finalists and to get so far was a massive achievement for all of us at the nursery.”
Busy Bees has been awarded the prestigious Silver Food for Life catering mark from the Soil Association for the second year running for serving fresh and healthy meals and supporting local food producers.
