Grasmere Primary School has been shortlisted in a national cookery competition thanks to the efforts of a six-year-old who created a “healthy, nutritional meal” - out of Lego.
Albert Queney Schork's plastic dish consisted of a veggie burger in a wholemeal bun, with sweet potato fries, homemade ketchup, salad and cheese.
The primary school in Albion Road, Stoke Newington, could now be in line to win £2,000 of cooking appliances to help support lessons. Cooking and nutrition do form part of the UK curriculum but it's thought only 25pc of primary schools have a teaching kitchen or facilities - meaning many pupils don't receive practical cookery experiences.
A public vote will decide which two out of the 10 shortlisted schools will win the equipment in the competition run by cooking brand Belling.
Votes can be cast at belling.co.uk/cookery-club-vote until May 24.
