Congratulations to all the students in TYC at Árdscoil na Tríonóide, Athy. Co. Kildare and team sMOOlicious, Eadaoin Burgess, Ellen Purcell,Clodagh Walsh, Emma Owens, Adam Ryan and Anna Cully.

Team SMOOlicious with their Home Economics teacher, Ms Jackie Cooper have made it through to the second round of the Milk It Awards competition run by the National Dairy Council.

Fifty teams were short listed from a large number of entries from schools all over Ireland.

In order to qualify, each team had to submit a short video pitch of how they plan to encourage young people to consume their recommended 5 portions of dairy a day in their school.

As they have qualified, the team now have to activate their campaign.

Team sMOOlicious plan to increase the consumption of dairy in Ardscoil na Trionoide by encouraging students to consume yogurt/milk based smoothies.

They have designed a bicycle powered smoothie maker to allow students make their own smoothies at break time.

Check out the video clips of the bike in action on the sMOOlicious Facebook page.
