Let’s get cooking
Parents and children from Rice Lane Infant and Nursery School came together for an after school ‘Cooking Extravaganza’ hosted by Alex Carroll the cookery club leader. Alex said: “I wanted to involve families in the event and hoped to teach children and parents alike, about healthy eating, how to put healthy and tasty recipes together, portion control and some key facts about how much water they should drink and how much fruit and vegetables they should eat per day. “Children had to chop, mix, grate, spread and knead their own ingredients and most were taken home to cook once assembled in foil trays and plates. The event was fantastic and really well attended, there was a real buzz in our school hall, it was lovely to see so many excited faces and families working together”.
