Parent’s workshops in schools. Why not arrange for me to come into your school and educate parents in a fun and hands-on way on the merits of a varied and balanced lunch. Let me inspire your parents by getting them cooking and tasting a variety of packed lucnh products.

Don’t worry, I’ll provide all equipment and ingredients. All you need to do is provide a space (class room or school hall) and the parents – up to 15 at a time please.

Cookery lessons for the children in school

I also visit Primary Schools around the county to offer help with food preparation and nutrition (cooking) lessons. My visits can also help with healthy school status and pupil wellbeing.

From September 2014 Food preparation and nutrition has been placed firmly in the  KS 1- 3 National curriculum

“As part of their work with food, pupils should be taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. Instilling a love of cooking in pupils will also open a door to one of the great expressions of human creativity. Learning how to cook is a crucial life skill that enables pupils to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and in later life.”
KS1 and 2 National curriculum 2013

If you’d like to hear more about what I can offer your school, and how it all works, please sign up here. I’ll be in contact as soon as possible. In the meantime you will be able to download my super guide to classroom based food lessons that can be taught with minimal equipment (no ovens) and maximum fun.


Practical based cookery lessons

I know that whilst many teachers would dearly love to deliver practical based cookery lessons on a regular basis as they know that pupils would benefit immeasurably from these types of learning opportunities it is not always logistically possible to make this a priority.

  • Do you feel restricted by a lack of equipment, experience and time to plan engaging cookery lessons?
  • Does your school lack equipment and a kitchen work space that is suited to younger cooks?
  • Do you sometimes feel limited to simpler no-cook, no mess activities that can leave both you and your pupils feeling a little bit flat? 
  • Is planning, equipping and delivering a practically based food preparation and nutrition lesson to your whole class an organisational drain?
