TODDLERS learned about healthy eating when they cooked miniature pizzas at Radwinter Pre-School.

The group, which meets at Hempstead Village Hall four days a week, is attended by

20 youngsters who all had fun baking the tasty snacks with their own choice of healthy toppings.

Supervisor Jane Maden said: "When the children turn three years old, they start to follow the foundation curriculum to prepare them for school.

"Healthy eating is part of that and is something we encourage the children to take an interest in."

Ms Maden, who works alongside three other members of staff, said the youngsters thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

"They had fun choosing their toppings including mushrooms, peppers and olives and helping bake the pizzas," she said.

"The children always have lunch on the premises and it was nice for them to eat what they had made."

Radwinter Pre-School was set up more than 20 years ago and moved to Hempstead to take advantage of an outdoor play area and modern hall seven years ago.

The group meets from 9.30am to 1pm every weekday, except Wednesdays. For more details call Jane Maden on 01799 550678.
