Healthy eating art awarded

Lauren Flanders, a fifth-grader at Queen’s Grant Community School, won second place in a nationwide art contest sponsored by school meal provider Preferred Meals.

Lauren was honored before her school Dec. 6 as Preferred Meals provided a framed picture of her art entry, entitled “No More Junk Food.” It shows healthy food smiling and candy locked in jail.

The contest's goal is to increase awareness of healthy school meals and educate students on healthy eating and lifestyle. It was open to 1,800 schools for students in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades. Lauren was among 10 second-place finishers; there were six first-place winners.
