Jamie puts healthy eating on the menu

A Knowsley Council chef has taken the healthy eating message to local primary school pupils.

Jamie Bowen, chef at the council’s Huyton Suite, followed in the footsteps of his famous namesake by staging a cooking demonstration for children at Hope Primary School at Lordens Road, Huyton.

He showed the pupils how to cook with vegetables grown in the school allotments – demonstrating how to prepare them and create tasty, healthy dishes.

Jamie’s demonstration in the school kitchen was filmed and relayed to all the pupils watching in the hall. The youngsters then had the chance to sample the dishes – and try cooking them themselves in the classroom.

Cllr Graham Morgan, Knowsley’s cabinet member for neighbourhood delivery said: “The council is committed to encouraging healthy diets for all our young people – either by providing nutritious, high quality school meals, supporting schools in growing their own vegetables, as well as staging events such as Jamie’s cookery session.

“We hope pupils attending the session will take home the healthy eating message and put it to good use at family mealtimes.”
