Pupils prepared some pukka food as they took part in a cooking lesson led by Jamie Oliver.

 

The chef, who has campaigned to transform school dinners, appeared via video link at The Blue School, in Isleworth, last Friday (May 16).

He guided 150 five to nine-year-olds at the school through the steps needed to prepare a 'rainbow salad wrap', packed with healthy fruit and vegetables.

The Blue School's young chefs were among a total of 237,822 children across 121 countries to take part in the interactive lesson during the day.

Organisers of the Food Revolution Day are confident they have smashed the existing Guinness World Record for the most participants in a cookery lesson, which stood at 2,012, though the new mark has yet to be verified.

As well as giving children the chance to become world record holders, the event was set up to promote healthy eating and cookery skills from a young age.

The Blue School headteacher Jon Frostick said: "Developing a healthy understanding of food, where it comes from and how you can prepare it is a key life skill.

"Celebrating Food Revolution Day is just one of the activities which The Blue School has planned to teach children about the benefits of healthy eating."
