A WORLE mum set up a free food preparation lesson in her own home in order to get parents to think healthy when feeding their children.

Former Priory school pupil Paula Luke, of Parklands Avenue, invited staff from Riverford Organics to help her cook up a storm in her kitchen.

The mother-of-two has previously worked with the School Food Trust to help train school cooks ready for the new nutritional standards for pupils' meals.

So, she decided to ask staff from the company that delivers organic vegetables to help her show her friends how to put together nutritional recipes.

The 46-year-old said: "I cook a meal from scratch nearly every day.

"I'm not on a crusade to make everybody shop and cook like me.

"I know I am lucky to have the time, energy and enjoyment to think about food and cook like this - but I know my friends and others are really keen to use more wholesome food that gives their children exposure to lots of new tastes.

"Somebody once said to me 'remember your baby is born with a neutral palate and it's down to you whether they develop a sweet tooth or learn to savour all flavours equally' - that is what I have tried to do with my children."
