Pupils cook their way to five a day

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

YOUNG­STERS have been putting their taste buds to work in a blind­folded taste test.

The 30 pupils, aged seven and eight, from Old Flet­ton Pri­mary School, in London Road, vis­ited the Har­vester pub and grill in Al­wal­ton, Peter­bor­ough, to work with a chef who taught them about cook­ing healthy food.

The day in­cluded a tour of the kitchen.

Man­ager of the Har­vester Neil Utley said: “The pupils learnt about the ori­gins of the freshly pre­pared fruits and veg­eta­bles in Har­vester’s fa­mous Salad Cart and put their taste buds to work for a blind taste test.”

Af­ter the prac­ti­cal ses­sion, the chil­dren got to sam­ple dishes from Har­vester’s Young Guest Menu.

They each re­ceived a cer­tifi­cate to mark their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the event.
