Success for Perfect Portions

Perfect Portions, a fifth year LCVP mini - company have qualified for the National Final of the Junior Achievement Ireland "Company of the Year" competition.

The group of five, Aoife Byrne, Sian Feeney, Emily Kehoe, Genevieve Walsh and Niamh White have developed a product to tackle the problem of obesity.

The product is a portion divider which shows how much carbohydrate, protein, dairy, fruit and vegetables should be eaten at each meal.  The aim of the product is to prevent over eating and to make parents aware of the dangers of obesity.  The portion divider comes in two sizes - Adults and Children.

The group also won a Special Merit Award at the Wexford Enterprise Awards in Whites hotel in Wexford.

The National Final of the "Company of the Year" will be held in Dublin on May 13th and 14th.  The winners will progress to the European Final in Berlin.
