The tasty delights of healthy vegetarian food were created and enjoyed by children at Berry Hill Primary School in Mansfield during a special day-long event.

To mark National Vegetarian Week, the school received a small grant from The Vegetarian Society to stage the event, which included a visit from Sandra Alvey and Barbara Phillips, of Mansfield District Council’s health team.

The youngsters made vegetarian pizza pockets from pitta bread bases, savoury muffins, vegetarian couscous salad, quorn wraps and fruit and yoghurt layer desserts, and many were surprised how much they liked it all!
