Teachers and pupils from schools across the UK were awarded the British Nutrition Foundation Drummond Education Award, recognising our future nutrition scientists at the very beginning of their careers. The award was presented during the British Nutrition Foundation’s Annual Awards ceremony, which highlights and champions those who have made positive and important contributions within the food and nutrition community.
The British Nutrition Foundation Drummond Education Awards were first established to promote interest in studying food and nutrition, highlight food qualifications and recognise the achievements of top students at GCSE/National 5 level, and now also at post-16 qualification level. Prizes were awarded to the students who received the highest grades in food and nutrition subjects by their respective examination boards – AQA, EDUQAS, OCR, SQA, WJEC – and the hard work and dedication of each winning student's teacher was recognised and rewarded too.
Elaine Hindal, Chief Executive, British Nutrition Foundation said: “It is truly inspiring to see pupils today so engaged in food and nutrition education. Each pupil receiving the Drummond Education Award has demonstrated an incredible ability and should be proud of their achievements. We are also pleased to be recognising the phenomenal teachers who are educating the next generation of nutrition scientists, teachers and leaders in food, nutrition and health.”

About the British Nutrition Foundation
Connecting people, food and science for better nutrition and healthier lives
The British Nutrition Foundation, a registered charity, delivers impartial, authoritative and evidence-based information on food and nutrition. Its core purpose is translating evidence-based nutrition science in engaging and actionable ways, working with an extensive network of contacts across academia, health care, education, communication and the food chain. A core strength of the Foundation is its governance structure (described in the Articles of Association), which comprises a Board of Trustees, Advisory Committee, Scientific Committee, Editorial Advisory Board, Education Working Groups and a Nominations Committee, on which serve senior/experienced individuals from many walks of life. The composition is deliberately weighted towards the scientific ‘academic’ community, based in universities and research institutes, and those from education, finance, media, communications and HR backgrounds.
The British Nutrition Foundation’s funding comes from: membership subscriptions; donations and project grants from food producers and manufacturers, retailers and food service companies; contracts with government departments; conferences, publications and training; overseas projects; funding from grant providing bodies, trusts and other charities. The British Nutrition Foundation is not a lobbying organisation nor does it endorse any products or engage in food advertising campaigns.
