As part of the Cooks On The Move project, run by the Cambridgeshire Catering Service, year 2 pupils at Nene Infant and Nursery School took part in a cookery workshop.

The children were shown how to cook scones, which they got to take home with them.

A Cooks On The Move spokesman said: “Our cookery workshops are designed to teach children to cook meals from scratch.

“This includes sourcing the right ingredients and transforming them into something wholesome and tasty.

“We want children to understand that the easy option of living off frozen ready meals or fast food is not the right choice.

“Rising obesity in children is causing significant health concerns.”
