Cooking" programme is led by the School Food Trust in partnership with other bodies such as the
Prince's Trust. It has three key targets:
- By the end of the five-year programme over 1
million children, family members and members of the local community will
increase their food preparation or cooking skills as a result of Let's Get
- 70% of participants, who learn a new healthy
eating skill through Let's Get Cooking, will use that skill at home.
- 50% of children, young people and families who
participate will eat more nutritionally healthy food.
Linda Selby, who helps run
the programme at The Bridge Learning Campus, was keen to point out the many
benefits of getting children involved with cooking and healthy eating at an
"We were delighted to get involved with this initiative," she said. "It
will help our children learn about nutrition in a fun way, encourage them to
sit and eat meals with their families, as well as giving them the confidence to
prepare and cook great food."
Pupils are being encouraged
to cook simple foods with simple ingredients and to understand the great
variety of seasonal and local produce that is available throughout the
year. Sausage and Bean Hot Pot was
recently on the menu as was Rogan Josh, the aromatic Lamb Curry!
Children from the Bridge Secondary
School, who are participating in the "Let's Get
Cooking" programme, will invite their families to the campus to enjoy the
fruits of their labour. The budding
chefs will then meet and greet their families, seat them and serve them the
delicious yet healthy meals that they have cooked.
Pupils at the nearby Perry
Court Infant and Junior
Schools in Hengrove have also
shown enthusiasm for their "Let's Get Cooking" Club and they have decided to
run a competition to see who will be their Mini Masterchef.
The winners will compete in
the final to be held at the Bridge Learning Campus in Hartcliffe.
Perry Court's cooking club is organised by Lin Dyer and Chris
Nicholas, teaching assistants at the Hengrove junior school. Over 20 Pupils from Years 5 and 6 have entered
the heats, which will require them cooking a Starter, a Main Course or a
Matthew Edwards, Head of
The Secondary School at Bridge Learning Campus in Hartcliffe, added, "We are looking forward to hosting this
excellent competition and we know the standards will be really high. Of course we are rightly proud of our excellent
academic record of being the most improved school in South Bristol with 85% of
students gaining 5 A* to C grades.
But here at The Bridge, we are also keen for our
pupils to develop a broad range of capabilities. This programme allows us to promote cooking
both as a skill and as an enjoyable activity."
