A GROUP of parents cooked up a roast dinner treat for their children in a bid to learn how to prepare a quick, cheap and healthy meal.
The Ready Steady Lunch class was held at Thongsley Fields Junior School in Huntingdon on Thursday, October 4.
The group allows parents to cook while their children go to a crèche. At noon the children are reunited with their parents to sample the food.
