The smell of courgettes, pesto and vegetable stir fry wafted through Dedworth Library on Monday as people enjoyed a Fun Food Factory.
Les Bradfield, police community support officer for Windsor East, ran the factory to show families how to make nutritious pasta dishes on a budget.
More than 70 tasty portions of stir fry and pasta were handed out to children with ingredients provided by the Tesco community champion for Windsor, Lisa Kimber.
The event marked the start of the library’s well-being week which aims to encourage library visitors to embrace a healthy lifestyle.
Mary Skelly, supervisor at Dedworth Library, said: “A lot of people don’t know how to make a healthy, cheap dinner.
“The idea was that we wanted to get people to come to the library who don’t normally come and learn about healthy eating.”
Mary is now hoping to run a similar event in the summer which could give visitors the chance to rustle up some summer fruit pancakes.
