Youngsters have been learning about healthy eating with a series of free family cooking sessions.
The classes, run by Creative Wellness at Thames View Infants in Barking, offer those living in the area the chance to learn how to prepare healthy and affordable meals.
More than 100 people have attended the sessions, funded by the NHS’s healthy new towns initiative, and learnt how to make dishes including lentil curry and fruit flan.
Khushnood Ahmed, project developer and facilitator at Creative Wellness, said: “After a successful series of workshops in Riverside Secondary School and George Carey Primary School, I’m delighted to be offering further sessions at Thames View Infants.
“It’s good to see that people of all ages are so keen to improve their lifestyle by cooking and eating healthy fresh food.”
