Curriculum for excellent teeth - recipe book from James Gillespie's Primary

Young chefs at James Gillespie's Primary launched a recipe book today aimed at improving dental health and diet and every P6 pupil across Edinburgh and the Lothians will receive a copy. The year long project between the school, NHS Lothian and Scotmid Co-operative was hailed by City of Edinburgh Council as a perfect example of Curriculum for Excellence in action.

Pupils have been involved in the production of the Scotmid funded Healthy Smiles Cookbook at every stage of its development, from the creation of recipes through to design, sponsorship, distribution and promotion. Teachers have used the project to help pupils learn across a range of subjects including art, IT, design, maths and English.
