James Hargest College students are exploring an innovative way to get their "5+ a day" by taking part in a nationwide school cooking challenge.

The year nine food technology class entered the Ready Fresh School Challenge, which tasked students with creating original recipes using products from Turners and Growers recently launched Ready Fresh.

Food and Nutrition teacher Mikaela Thompson said the students had to create their own recipes, or bring in an old family recipe and prepare a dish within a time limit.

A photo of the finished product would go on the Ready Fresh website, where people could vote for their favourite dish, she said.

James Hargest was the only Southland school taking part in the challenge, she said.
