A little girl from Kilninver Primary School’s pre-5 unit has created a recipe book of smoothies to encourage her fellow pupils to eat healthily.
Four-year-old Heidi Martin loves fruit and vegetables at snack time and was keen to make sure that her passion was passed on.
With some help from her teachers, Heidi wrote out her favourite recipes and drew colourful illustrations to accompany them to form a book.
Not only were her friends and teachers impressed, but Heidi’s actions also caught the attention of the school’s catering manager, May MacKenzie, who offered to help Heidi bring her recipes to life.
After a lot of hard work, Heidi and May were able to serve up a delicious smoothie to everyone in the school – much to the delight of her classmates.
Argyll and Bute Council’s Policy Lead for Education, Councillor Yvonne McNeilly said: “Wow – well done Heidi!
"What a great initiative, especially for such a young child. Heidi’s book looks fantastic and is a great way of promoting healthy eating that not only tastes delicious, but is also fun to make.
“Heidi is a credit to her school and I believe that she has a very bright future ahead of her. Watch out Mary Berry!”
