Comments from Teachers:
“I can’t thank you enough for involving us in the [Food Explorers] project. The children had a fabulous week with so many experiences that I know they will remember for a very long time.” - Sarah Cooper, Head Teacher at Oxford Gardens Primary
" Food Explorers Week has been a phenomenal week that has created a unique buzz around our school. It has been the perfect opportunity to immerse pupils in being enthusiastic and inspired about healthy eating. All pupils have thoroughly enjoyed themselves as well developed their competence in healthy eating choices which they are equipped to use in their everyday lives and in the long term." - Amal Elhabti, Teacher at Colville Primary
“We really enjoyed the Food Explorers week. The International Cafe was a huge success and was one of the best attended events we’ve ever had at our school. The children are developing an interest in eating healthy food and we cannot wait to do it again next year!” - PSHE primary teacher
“We believe it is vitally important that children learn both how to grow food and how to cook and eat healthily. These (Food Explorers) skills will now be transmitted down the generations and be invaluable for local families for years to come.” - Councillor Judith Blakeman
"What made this stand apart was the breakfast demos providing good practical breakfast skills. Some of the kids had never made eggs and now know how to make & enjoy them". - Teacher, Ashburnham Community
"All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the week and were actively engaged throughout. This has ignited a passion for food. I'm really impressed." - Year 3 teacher, Colville Primary
Comments from our Junior Food Explorers:
"I liked seeing there were so many different countries in school and trying the food like Spanish paella & tapas."
“I like that now I can now teach my mum to read food labels and see how much sugar is in our breakfast cereals.”
"My favourite part of the school trip was the healthy pizza, fruit and vegetables...also seeing the fish be prepared."
"My favourite food, curry, used to be something I didn't want to try. But my friend's mum cooked it at International Cafe & now I really like the spiciness."
"I liked the smoothie competition which let us be master chefs and was judged by our student council."
