Chef Clover Hudson helped youngsters make and cook their own healthy pizzas which included making the dough from scratch.

Children could also take part in science lab activities which included making edible slime and exploding rockets.

The children took home what they had made along with a goody bag and recipe card so they are able to make the pizzas again at home.

Community champion from the Tesco Extra store in Great Yarmouth Hayley Cook and service manager Sue Crow attended the event to hand out the goody bags and recipe cards.

Hayley said: 'This was an opportunity to provide a free activity for families during the school holidays and we hope to do more similar events in the future.
