THE fruits of young artists' labour will be on display at an Exmouth cafe this half term as healthy drinks got the creative juices flowing in Withycombe.Pupils at Withycombe Raleigh Primary School have created posters to mark the first anniversary of a healthy food campaign run by Exmouth cafe owners.The Devon Juice Company celebrated a year of their 'Drink a Rainbow' scheme by returning to the school where they began their quest to get youngsters eating and drinking more fresh fruit and veg.Company co-owner Mareike Chalkley said: "Children might not be so keen to eat carrots or peppers, but give them the chance to use their imagination and create a juice mix with all kinds of fresh ingredients and you are onto a winner!"We have worked with more than 10 schools in the Exmouth and Exeter area in 2007 and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive."Mareike will now display posters made by the kids for a competition promoting the Drink a Rainbow scheme at the Devon Juice Cafe she runs with Alex Chalkley in The Strand. Posters will go up in half-term week, starting February 16.For more info on the juicy campaign, visit www.drinkarainbow.com.
