Following the success of Art on a Plate last year, Nestlé Professional Chefs gave children a taste of serving up tasty looking food and unique insights into why working as a chef is a career of choice this week.
Approximately 60 students from Tyneview Primary School in Newcastle and Victoria Community Primary School in Burton upon Trent took part in cooking sessions, which involved children in the cooking and presentation of meals, making it fun and interactive.
This is a great way to ensure good eating habits are established early on. Encouraging children to be creative with food allows them to be adventurous and discover new foods they may otherwise avoid.
The Nestlé Professional chefs also gave students unique insights into a day in the life of a chef and why being a chef is a career destination of choice.
This work is part of Nestlé’s Global commitment to promote children’s nutrition, health and wellbeing through Nestlé Healthy Kids Programme.
