Food-loving tots had a special trip to their local supermarket to find out more about healthy eating.

Children, aged between two and five, from the School of Cook in Churwell were invited by Morrisons to take a stroll around their store and see what they had to offer.

The supermarket is supporting the project and making donations towards their workshops, with the help of Michael Moorhouse, the store’s community champion, who was keen to invite the children to take a look at Market Street and learn about what they work with in class - such as the traffic light system and eat well plate.

They learned about what happens to the food in store, how their fresh food is made and what types of food are good for you. The trip also came with a tasting session- their favourite part!

The School of Cook, which caters for children aged from two to pre-school, is now enrolling for their third term.

The five week term runs from Friday, February 26, to Friday, April 1, and is open from 10am-11.30am at Churwell Community Centre. They provide the opportunity for parents to work with their children with each class creating interest in cooking healthy food, developing cooking skills and raising their self-esteem.
