The whole school enjoyed a wonderful morning at the Cooking4Life workshop, learning about nutrition and the importance of eating a healthy lunch.

This term we will be introducing a reward system to encourage children to eat a healthy lunch, whether this is a school lunch or a packed lunch – more details will follow regarding this.

In addition to showing us how to cook and prepare vegetables, the chef demonstrated a healthy and an unhealthy packed lunch.

Here is an example of items to include in a healthy packed lunch.


These are items which should not be included in a packed lunch as they are unhealthy.

My favourite part was watching the man and Kayla, Mia and Jude making the food. I enjoyed it when he made the pasta salad. I liked it when he said what was good for packed lunches – Alex

I’ve learned that you don’t have to be perfect to cook things like pasta.  My favourite part was cutting the tomatoes and grating a carrot – Kayla K
