BUDDING master chefs with a green conscience were eager to test out their new prize equipment after winning a national competition.
Year Three pupils at Godwin Primary School, Finnymore Road, Dagenham, won food processors for their school's cookery classes after putting together dishes with the lowest amounts of food miles.
Lynn Pettet, teaching assistant at Godwin School, said: "The children were really over the moon.
"It was a really good experience and it made the children aware of where the food comes from."

Ms Pettet said: "The whole meal came from literally across the road."
She said that the school had included cookery in its curriculum and was running out of school cooking classes and added: "We have quite a lot of children that are really interested in cookery.
