Look to Cook - In School
Childhood obesity is getting worse and this in part is down to peoples’ lack of cooking skills. By teaching our children to cook they are more likely to grow up to be healthy adults because they have a better knowledge of cooking techniques, preparing food and new tastes.
From 2014 the requirement for practical cooking lessons came into effect and there are 155 primary Schools in East Sussex and 528 in Kent. A large portion of these schools don’t have access to a teaching kitchen.
Working alongside ESCC and KCC we will support those schools that are struggling to deliver this part of the curriculum. Our mission will not only deliver on the national curriculum but also empower young people to make healthier food choices. Our programmes will be delivered both from our bespoke cooking classroom in Hawkhurst and also at schools throughout the Counties.
