Parkside students eat their way to health

On the first day students and staff of the Cullingworth school were able to taste fruit and vegetables that some of them had never heard of before.

These included sharon fruit, lychees, artichoke, edamame beans, and a dhudi that is apparently nice in curry

The food room was transformed into the Fakeaway Takeaway with healthy versions of classic takeaway meals, including vegetable burgers, tortilla pizza, Thai noodle salad, Chinese stir fry, sweet potato and spinach curry, and lemon fish bites with salt and pepper chips.

The majority of the recipes came from the bestselling A Pinch of Nom book.

School spokesperson Majella McColgan said: “There were students queuing down the corridor waiting to come and sample the food. Students said we should do it every day.

“The year eight Food Practical students followed a live screening of a 'Cook-a-thon' where they made delicious bean burritos at the same time as it was demonstrated on the screen.”

The week ended with a Get Active challenge where the PE department held a football skills session, raising money for UNICEF.
