FOODIES at a Stourport school have been busy sampling different types of fresh produce as part of their studies.

As part of their healthy food topic - munching and crunching - the year three Burlish Park Primary School pupils were treated to a guided tour of the school's allotment by young members of the Slugs Allotment Club - run and organised by eco schools co-ordinator Lynda Williams and year thee teacher Mary Collacott .

Fresh produce such as curly kale, beetroot, courgettes, pumpkin, carrrots and and potatoes were picked and cooked for the children to sample.

Mrs Williams said: "The munching and crunching topic is an excellent way to introduce children to the concept of picking and sampling home grown produce which has a totally different taste to vegetables purchased in the shops.

β€œIt also presents an excellent opportunity for the children who attend allotment club to showcase their talents and knowledge of growing vegetables. A great time was had and everyone enjoyed the food tasting afternoon.”
