Cllr Suzy Horton, cabinet member for education at Portsmouth City Council, said: ‘It's a real pleasure to see how enthusiastically the children created tasty and nutritious food today. It's been great to have a focus on different vegetables each week so that schools can use a variety of ingredients and encourage students to try something new. I think I’m going to be pinching some of these recipes!'
