About The Project

Many young people in our community eat large amounts of junk food and high energy drinks. A notable amount of girls think the way to stay slim is to miss meals. Missing breakfast and lunch affects their ability to concentrate in school leading to under achievement. Convenience and high sugar foods are the norm. A poll taken with under 14s of packed lunches during play-scheme revealed high fat and sugar content diets.  They love to cook talking but have little opportunity at home to learn the most basic skills of cooking food from scratch.

 

Thanks to funding from the National Lottery we are going to learn how to cook real healthy food from scratch. We are going to share with you our recipes through photos, short videos and produce a cookery book and hopefully inspire others in our community to get cooking and eating healthy.
