MOROCCAN-STYLE cous cous was the dish of the day when almost 100 children were asked to create some delicious grub.

Pupils from Glenwood School, in Emsworth, took part in the government’s Let’s Get Cooking cook-off on Wednesday.

Seventy youngsters from the school took over the school’s kitchens to chop up cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers to add to the simple but tasty dish.

In the afternoon it was the turn of pupils from Emsworth Primary School and St James Primary School who enjoyed cooking together and tucking into their dish afterwards.

Rachel Smith, who runs the Let’s Get Cooking club at Glenwood, said: ‘It was a big success.

‘The cous cous was very tasty and very easy to make.

‘Let’s Get Cooking is a great initiative to encourage children to cook and make healthy meals.

‘We hold our club in the lunchtime and it’s very popular.’
