Sir George looked in at Tesco Extra in Andover, to see how the Eat Happy Project was getting on.
"This is part of the supermarket's long term commitment to improve children's diets by helping them understand where the food comes from, and the journey it takes to get to their plates".
Sir George looked in when a dozen 8-10 year olds were spending two hours in the store making falafels.
"This involved preparing a number of herbs and vegetables, and I was impressed by the way the children worked together as a team, although many of them had only met each other on the morning - and their interest in where the food came from".
The course is in partnership with the Children's Food Trust, and is promoted under the brand 'Farm to Fork' cooking classes.
"This was a great way for kids to learn essential skills in preparing food from scratch".
