FORGET Saturday Kitchen, its Kitchen Kids which keen cooks are tuning into.

Young chefs at The Olive Tree Primary School in Daubhill are creating quite a stir with their award-winning healthy eating episode for the fun online series.

Their efforts have netted them a Lit Film Fest Award for Kitchen Kids, supported by BBC Good Food Mag.

Lit Fest is a primary school film festival designed to enrich children’s literacy and digital learning.

Each month awards are given out to the best film in different categories, including Kitchen Kids.

The bright young things at The Olive Tree Primary are filmed cooking up a healthy Mediterranean dish and their film has already had more than 4,000 views.

Children wrote, presented, directed and filmed the piece.

Sabiha Munshi, teacher said: "Throughout the day, children spent time filming their scenes for the cooking show in small groups and five hours later it was a wrap! There was a 'karate chopping' of cucumbers, some fluffing of 'fine grained' cous cous and some 'succulent apricots' tossed inside the bowl for some subtle sweetness.

"To add to it, they added some 'banana ballerina' and 'giggly grapes' chefs, two highly entertaining show hosts and a gang of healthy eating interviewees.

"Quotes from the day were 100 per cent positive and went along the lines of 'this is such fun' and 'we are so lucky to be winners and just by doing some amazing writing — this day is the best ever and I can't wait for our movie to be on YouTube Kids.' "

Dominic Traynor, founder of Lit Film Fest, said:"We created the Kitchen Kid project as a way to help teachers educate children on the importance of a healthy eating, whilst honing their writing and digital skills in the process.

"We've been blown away by the response from classrooms around the country —the enthusiasm from the pupils of the Olive Tree Primary was superb and they should be very proud of their video.

"It's brilliant to now see their efforts being featured at LitFilmFest and on the BBC GoodFood YouTube channel — an excellent platform to promote the importance of nutritious yet simple meals for children."

The pupils will be invited to a special screening at FACT Picturehouse in Liverpool, where they will be shown films that have been

written, performed and filmed by Key Stage Two pupils using the LitFilmFest resources.
