Children at a Peterborough school had the chance to eat their greens - and only their greens - as part of a week of dedicated to vegetarianism.

To coincide with National Vegetarian Week, Dogsthorpe Junior School, in Central Avenue, held a number of activities based on the dietary lifestyle.

Youngsters had the chance to cook and sample veggie dishes and were also encouraged to opt for a vegetarian alternative at lunch times.

Those who took part were rewarded with a certificate.

School secretary Rose Croft (26), member of the Peterborough Vegetarian Group, who organised the event, said “The aim was to get children thinking about their food a little bit more, about healthy eating and alternative ways of thinking.”
