One Day at Kirklandpark Primary the fire alarm goes off and smoke pours from the school kitchen where the lunches are being made.
Three pupils hear the noise and decide that they should go to investigate. They hear a big bang and the dinner ladies screaming in surprise.
Suddenly William Wallace appears from the kitchen and points to the menu. On the menu today is deep fried pizza with chips and deep fried mars bar. William Wallace explains that he is here to change the menu to make it healthier. The children offer to help him.
To make the menu healthier Wallace decides to add some dishes of his own. He goes hunting for healthy food.
Unfortunately Wallace’s idea of healthy food is not the same as the children’s. He returns holding a rabbit!
When the children see the rabbit they realise that no one will want to try Wallace's healthier menu. He cooks the Rabbit but no one wants to try it!
The children explain to Wallace that tastes in food have changed a lot over the centuries. They take him along to the computer room to carry out some research.
Wallace learns that healthy food is good for the body and it leaves you feeling fit. With 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day you have a balanced diet.
Wallace reads some cook books to find some tasty recipes. He knows he must make tasty and nutritious food for the children to eat.
Finally Wallace has a new menu for the children to try.
All the children decide to try Wallace’s menu. They all enjoy it and begin to feel the benefits of a healthy diet. They feel fit and healthy.
When it is time for Wallace to leave he has a special present for the children. He leaves them his cook book full recipes so that they can continue with their healthy diet.
