Schoolchildren return the flavour and cook for their families

Primary school children turned the tables at a pub-restaurant to serve up a three-course meal for mums and dads.

The Trigger Pond in Bucknell was marking its new children’s menu so welcomed 15 kids from Langford Village Primary School to help them present it.

Boys and girls served up a menu of mixed veggie sticks with avocado, sour cream and tzatziki dips, homemade burgers with potato wedges and a summer fruit muffin with vanilla cream.

Pupils’ restaurant guests then donated a sum they deemed the dish to be worth, to The Kids Cookery School charity.

Kids were talked through the recipes by charity founder Fiona Hamilton-Fairley.

She said: “I think in general, they’re all pretty happy. We’ve got through a lot of things, they’ve behaved incredibly well and we have had a lot of fun.

“We believe that every child has a right to learn to cook healthy, nutritious food. The opportunity to sell our kids’ menu at The Trigger Pond will not only give the kids a healthy option for eating out, but will also raise funds to support our work around the country.”

The charity has recently struck a partnership with BRITA and together hope to give more schoolchildren the chance to cook for family members while raising money.

Owner of The Trigger Pond Ben Coombes said: “It’s a real passion project for me so I’m always looking for ways to offer more to my customers.

“We often have kids in the restaurant so it’s a great opportunity to be able to work with and support the The Kids Cookery School in this way. I’m sure the children will love the new options.”
