A Seven-year-old Leeds girl has helped a UK airline choose its new kids’ range of in-flight meals.

Erin-Isla Yates was part of a Pudsey Panel of young people, joined by Pudsey Bear himself, who were tasked with taste testing dishes for Monarch Airlines and its on-board partner Alpha LSG.

Meatballs with tomato sauce and wholemeal penne pasta and roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings came out on top.

Pudsey was in town to help Monarch, which flies from Leeds Bradford Airport, as a donation from each meal sold will go to BBC Children in Need.

Erin-Isla said: “Some food is yucky and I don’t really want to eat it, but these were all yummy.”

The first meals will be served to Monarch’s young passengers on November 1.
