'My daughter and I really enjoyed your parent/child class. We have both learnt to experiment more and try new things. We now look forward to preparing our meals. Thank you so much'
I absolutely love teaching children all about food, cookery and healthy eating. I have designed a series of courses to suit various age groups and criteria.
Children love to cook and play with food. The more they cook, the more they taste - so we get less fussy eaters and more budding Jamie Oliver's!
A new concept that has worked well, particularly for parents who are struggling to provide a healthy diet.
I offer a 5-8 week course, which takes 2-3 hours per week. The first half of the course is with the parent discussing dietary issues, how to cook on a budget and general healthy eating tips.
The children join us for more healthy eating education before we get messy with the cookery part of the session.
Parents are given information leaflets and recipes at the end of each session. The children are given a piece of homework to complete before the next session.
I work closely with teachers to develop a programme that is in line with the national curriculum. Most classes last 2 hours - 5-8 week courses and can combine food education, safety in the kitchen and cookery. I can combine these courses with my existing work as a nutritionist in Exeter, Devon, working with families to support health, allergy testing, food intolerances and promote a healthy lifestyle.
Cookery for all ages
I offer healthy eating and cookery classes for all age groups ranging from reception, KS1, KS2 and teenagers. I also offer home visit cookery days for friends and family.
