Pupils healthy eating designs hit the spot
PRODUCT design students at Macclesfield Academy have come up with some fantastic designs to help fast food diners make healthy choices.
The six GCSE product design students have been researching and designing a ‘point of sale’ stand to encourage healthy eating in McDonalds restaurants as part of their coursework.
Taking influence from 1950s styled American diners, they each came up with some eye catching designs and advertisements designed to catch the diners eye as they order.
The students then took their work to McDonald’s where they were able to test them out in situ and see how effective they are.
Rebecca Lucas, who teaches product design at the school, said: “Standards this year are exceptional! I am impressed with the enthusiasm shown by the class.
“I was very proud to accompany them to McDonald’s to showcase their products.”
She added: “We were told that McDonald’s HQ is very interested in the work our students have been doing.”
