Margaret Hodge joins young cooks in healthy kitchen
YOUNGSTERS got creative in the kitchen as they helped launch a new healthy living partnership.
The pupils were given an interactive cookery demonstration by professional chef Alison Carmen, who taught them about what ingredients go into a chicken wrap.
They then got the chance to make their own, picking up tips on how to make their food even healthier, such as grilling the chicken instead of frying it.
The event, which took place at The Gascoigne Health and Community Centre last Friday, marked the launch of a new partnership between the borough and the national youth health campaign, Make Space for Health.
The campaign, which is run by children’s charity 4Children and supported by Nestle, aims to promote physical and psychological well being in young people.
