THE BLINDFOLDS were on and the children of Beacon Primary School had to guess what exotic foods were on their tongues.The pupils were treated to a day of food, drink and sensory games when the chefs from Manor Cottage gave demonstrations on healthy eating.Kevin Lake and Anita Pemberton held tasting sessions on healthy dishes and challenged the pupils to guess the exotic foods like passion fruit and butternut squash while blindfolded.Alison Douglas, teacher, said: "It was absolutely fantastic and the children were certainly inspired to come up with exciting dishes."The year two and three pupils enjoyed delightful tests on jellies with an opposite colour and flavour, which left the children wanting more.Each child put forward a dish they had invented in a competition by Manor Cottage, where the winning dish will become a permanent part of their children's menu.In a drive for healthy eating, Devon Juice Cafe, in Exmouth, also visited the school and got the children to make rainbow smoothie drinks.
