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."
