Youngsters from LVS Ascot took part in Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day on Friday, where nearly 10,000 schools in more than 100 countries took part in the challenge.
The 17 children from Years Eight and Nine made ‘rainbow salad wraps’ – a wrap filled with different cheeses and vegetables – by following Jamie Oliver’s lesson through a live televised broadcast.
The wraps were a hit too, with the children enjoying eating them afterwards.
Christine Henderson, head of design and technology at the school, said: “Mr Oliver has done so much to revolutionise school dinners, knowledge on healthy eating and has even provided resources for us time-strapped teachers! He’s my hero!”
Pupil Sophie Lindsay added: “We learned to use seasonal food which is more environmentally friendly, plus we did everything by hand, using less energy.”
The attempt smashed the previous record holder for world’s biggest cookery lesson, which was less than 3,000 schools.
