Gallery: Youngsters from Eyke Primary School get creative in the kitchen

BUDDING chefs have been whipping up some culinary treats in a break from their usual classroom activities.

Youngsters from Eyke Primary School near Woodbridge have been taking part in a special food week.

The youngsters have been getting creative in the kitchen as well as learning about diet, healthy eating and where our food comes from.

Yesterday, pupils decorated cupcakes, tasted various cordials and painted bread.

They have also made butter, baked bread, created their own cereal bars, visited Buttrum’s Mill in Woodbridge to learn about milling flour and tasted fruit.

The children’s school dinners have also had an exotic flavour with cuisine from around the world including Jamaica, China and America.

Today there will be a harvest festival where the food the children have made will be sold in aid of Unicef.
