PUPILS at a Barry primary school tucked in to some healthy fast food when a lorry parked up at their school.
Jenner Park youngsters recently welcomed the Health Challenge Wales Cooking Bus to the school.
Children were treated to trips to the purpose-built Cooking Bus kitchen where they learned all about healthy foods, how to prepare them safely and how to cook them.
The children were able to take their own meals home.
Year 6 pupils Anglina, Cameron and Luke said: “Wow. Food on Wheels. We made exciting, healthy, tasty food and would recommend the experience to anyone.”
Year 5 Ellie said: “A lot of effort went into making the cooking lesson fun.”
Jake added: “Jane’s instructions and techniques were explained thoroughly so that we were able to practice the skills without hurting ourselves.”
Bradley, of year 5, said “I loved the experience and can’t wait to do it again.”
Head teacher David Morris said: “Hopefully parents will have seen a difference at home with all those children volunteering to help out in the kitchen.
“Well, we can hope”
He added: “We also took part in two days of Healthy Eating workshops with Adele Twomey who is the community wellbeing coach for Barry Communities First.
“The Healthy Eating workshops were aimed at children understanding what an eat well plate consists of. Children had the opportunity to discuss types of food and how different foods are good for our bodies and create an eat well plate."
Reception pupil Molly said: “The fruit was delicious.”
