Activity Kit for children launched
For the last five years Premier Foods has run its McDougalls Young Baking Team of the Year competition and had planned to hold it again this summer. With the closure of schools, it will no longer be possible to run this competition in the same way as we have in the past. However, in these times of uncertainty it’s more important than ever that we look after young people.
With schools being closed for most children, we know that parents are going to be on the hunt for activities that can be completed at home. We also know the role that school chefs play in educating pupils about food, cooking and healthy lifestyles and children are going to miss this valuable connection. It’s important that as an industry we do all we can to support families and schools faced with a completely new situation for the coming months.
We have created some fun activities which anyone can download and use at home or in schools. Cooking is such an important life skill and one that families can do collectively. It’s known for increasing children’s confidence and food brings people together – both things we need more of now than ever.
We would love to see your completed activity sheets. You can share these by either tagging @PremierFoods_FS on Twitter and Instagram or sending to the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PremierFoodsFoodservice. We will be sharing some of our favourites on our social media channels.
We will regularly be updating this toolkit with new fun ideas so keep checking for the latest activities.
