Wellsford School preparing their students for a tasty future

Wellsford School is preparing their students for a tasty future - teach kids how to cook and they will eat for a lifetime

The Kids Can Cook Kitchen team is very excited to be returning to Wellsford Primary School in the Auckland region on the 3 rd September to cook with the whole school and to also run a free parent cooking programme. A big thumbs up to the Wellsford Rotary Club who have supported our return visit to this tasty community where the schools vision is to prepare their students for a future that fulfills their individual potential.

The mobile kitchens focus is on a community of Kids Feeding Themselves and we will be using seasonal produce from the school gardens and cooking with over 350 students during the day. The parent program theme is “Supa Foods for your Supa Kids" and it is a fun, interactive cooking class offering nutritious food choices for lunch and dinner time. It includes lots of tasty seasonal food tips & money saving tricks for the whole family.

After we have scrubbed down the kitchen benches at Wellsford School we will be heading south to visit ......Hauraki Plains College, Aorangi School Rotorua, Te Amawatu School, Lytton High School, Wairoa College, Raureka School in Hastings, LindisFarne College Napiar, Te Awa School Napiar and Roslyn School Palmerston North before the end of Term 3.

Over the last two years we have traveled nationwide from Southland to the Far North cooking with over 45,000 students in over 300 schools from small rural schools and large city schools. We cater to primary, intermediate and secondary schools and tailor our message to suit the age groups with younger classes focusing on fun and getting involved and older children on what is in our food, McDonald's, energy drinks and healthy options.

We have visited so many great schools in NZ who are actively making a difference in their communities. If you would like any further information about our programmes please do not hesitate to contact us
