AFTER its success last autumn, North Kesteven District Council’s food team are taking their Food Cart back on the road, serving up culinary ideas for families.

The team are offering live cooking demonstrations and free tastings at school gates to inspire quick, economic and wholesome meals at home throughout June and July.

The environmental health officers paid a visit to Heckington Primary School as children left school last week. They will return on July 3 for a second helping.

The team went to Our Lady of Good Counsel Roman Catholic School in Sleaford yesterday (Tuesday) and will go again on July 10. Visits to Walcott Primary School are scheduled for June 26 and July 17.

The school-gate sessions are funded by NHS Lincolnshire to encourage families to cook good fresh food in the home, using local produce where possible.

Free recipe books with children in mind are being distributed to parents alongside the tasters, who will also be invited to a six-week course in basic cookery skills, with general advice on nutrition, food safety and food labelling.

Each recipe can be made in 45 minutes or less and involve plenty of fruit and vegetables.
