WEST Rise pupils learned about fruit and vegetables during a visit to the Sovereign Harbour Harvester.
Staff at the restaurant welcomed 25 pupils from the school and taught them about the importance of their five a day.
Simon Chalk, Harvester manager, said, “The session was a fun way to get the children talking about why their five-a-day is so important, and it’s part of Harvester’s mission to bring out the best in the local community by encouraging people of all ages to come together.”
After a tour of the kitchen the youngsters helped themselves to the salad cart and had a meal from the Young Guest Menu.
Each child received a certificate to mark their participation in the event and went home with a goodie bag containing ingredients to make a salad at home.
Nicole Essex, who teaches the eight and nine-year-old pupils, said, “It was great to see the children getting so excited about fresh fruit and vegetables.
“All of them learnt a lot in the session and had fun in the process, so we would like to thank the Sovereign Harbour Harvester for letting us all visit.”
