Taste Kitchen Challenge Winners!

As part of our mission to get young people eating fresh, healthy food, we challenged young people, aged 5–14, to get creative and design an original recipe, inspired by Team GB. Check out the winners below and all their amazing prizes!

With over 550 entries and a high standard throughout, our judging panel of representatives from Team GB and Aldi had a tough job selecting just one winner from each age group. The panel looked for recipes with clearly written instructions, a mix of healthy ingredients and a creative, original Team GB-inspired dish. Our three winners each ticked off these elements – sharing recipes and images of their dishes that looked good enough to eat!

Ages 5–7 winner

Theo, aged 6

St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Birmingham 

Recipe: Power Cookies

Tasty, fruity and healthy power cookies – a great source of energy!

The judges loved Theo’s quick, simple-to-make and tasty Power Cookies. Celebrating Team GB with British apples and strawberries for a healthy burst of energy, these cookies would be a great snack for any athlete in training.

Ages 8–11 winner

Sebastian, aged 10

Berwick Middle School, Berwick 

Recipe: Olympian Soup with cheese scone

A really tasty and healthy vegetable soup with a cheese scone. The recipe is vegetarian but can easily be made vegan by swapping the dairy products for plant based alternatives.

The judges were impressed by the cooking skills shown in Sebastian’s recipe – providing a method for both a tasty soup and a healthy wholewheat scone. The Olympic themed decorations add a fun Team GB twist to the presentation of a well-balanced and delicious dish!

Ages 11–14 winner and our overall winner

Megan, aged 12

Theale Green School, Theale

Recipe: Team GB Olympic Ring Stir Fry

A delicious steak and vegetable stir fry in an Asian Oyster and Spring Onion sauce served with basmati rice. A quick and easy dish to prepare and cook – essential after a gruelling training session.

The judges loved the thought behind Megan’s recipe – exploring links to the Olympic Games and celebrating her own taekwondo journey. Creating a well-balanced and quick-to-make meal (great for a post-training, school or work dinner), the judges also enjoyed Megan’s photo guide to her recipe preparation and beautifully presented final dish.
