Kit Kat or Kiwi fruit?

That was the question put to pupils from Poulton St Chad’s CE Primary School after they spent the day with Twelve!

Youngsters enjoyed plenty of foodie fun, learning about healthy eating, dining etiquette and how to make their own delicious pasta.

There was lots of advice about the benefits of eating fruit instead of chocolate bars as well as eating meals at the dining table instead of by the television.


Children were given their own chefs hats as they helped Paul Moss to make fresh pasta served with a pesto sauce and chicken, followed by yummy fruit smoothies.

Caroline Upton, Front of House Proprietor at Twelve, said the youngsters enjoyed learning about where their food comes from, and also about dining at home and in restaurants.

She said: “We were delighted to welcome pupils from St Chad’s CE Primary School to Twelve. We talked about all sorts of things and there were lots of enthusiastic questions, such as, is it ok for a vegetarian to eat a chicken which is also vegetarian? And, is the marrow in a beef bone healthy for my dog?

“The children really enjoyed pulling the fresh pasta through the pasta machine, and they were amazed when we showed them a chicken and explained where their chicken nuggets come from!

“Hopefully, we will have inspired the next generation of chefs and foodies!”
