More healthy food could be on the menu in Cornish schools.

Dinnerladies are being offered training in dishing up more nutritious meals.

A European-funded trial at Helston College is being rolled out across the Duchy.

One mum in Turo told Pirate FM: "Because if they know what they're dishing up and they are all for the healthy eating, then they can promote it to the children, rather than it just being from a teacher's point of view."

The training has received backing from Jamie Oliver's Cornish restaurant.

Matthew Thomson is Managing Director of Fifteen at Watergate Bay.

He said: "You can also teach a lot of different things in food. Once you start talking about healthy eating you're opening up the way to a lot of different conversations that can help improve performance of children across the curriculum, as well as giving them new, fun ways to develop their concentration skills.

"Healthy food and healthy meals make a massive difference to education. A lot of the children who are in school in Cornwall are coming from farms and food producers in the county, and it's just really good for them to understand the difference that their produce makes in the life of the county."
