Mon-stars everywhere are in for a feast of scrumptious treats, as Jamie cooks up a storm with everyone's favourite Moshi Monster, Furi.

The dynamic duo have teamed up on Food Tube to create their delicious Butternut Squash Muffins to inspire young budding chefs around the world to learn how to cook. Jamie is also the latest celebrity to receive a monster makeover - transformed into a 'fang-tastic' Moshling character, Jammie Olive Oil, complete with the chef's signature quiff and plaid shirt.

Keen to put the 'grr' into great food, Jamie is working alongside the Moshi Monsters to encourage children to get into the kitchen. We firmly believe that the more children learn about what they are eating, the healthier they will be.

Jamie had this to say; "My kids love Moshi Monsters and are big fans, so to get transformed in to a Moshling character has made me the coolest dad ever. The fact that I'm able to encourage children to start cooking makes this partnership even better. Kids are never too young to start learning about different fruits and vegetables, or even how to cook, and this year I'm hoping Food Tube will encourage more people to be creative with their cooking."

With diet-related diseases rising at an alarming rate, it has never been more important to educate children about food, where it comes from and how it affects their bodies.
