A Hampshire pub is playing host to pupils from the local primary school who are learning about nutrition.

Licensees Georgie and Paul Stewart of the Good Intent in Petersfield invited classes from the local Herne Junior School in to the pub to learn about healthy eating.

The couple are passionate about nutrition and use only fresh local ingredients in their Campaign for Real Food-accredited menu.

The classes are held in the pub's kitchen and include the chance for the children to have a go at cooking themselves.

Mrs Stewart said: "We talk about basic nutrition with the children and then we show them how to cook a dish in the kitchen. They have a go, then they eat it, go home and tell their parents all about it.

"I've had a very good reaction from the children so far - they were excited and asked lots of questions."

Mrs Stewart uses sports and pop stars as examples of healthy eaters to make the lessons fun and she is hoping the nutritional message will filter through to the children's parents.

"Many of the problems of unhealthy eating stem from working parents and a lack of time, but we are showing pupils that we can cook healthy food and we can do it quickly," she added.
