Little Cooks Club Gives Back
Over the years, Little Cooks Club has helped many children in need — by providing gifts and classes; by donating old toys and clothes to underprivileged schools; by raising money for cancer and the rape crisis centre; and much more — and we hope to get involved with further projects that are close to our hearts. Let us know if you would like to help in any way, big or small. By passing this message along, you will also be helping us to get more people involved.
Christine Phillips of Little Cooks Club is an ambassador of the Food Revolution in Johannesburg, South Africa. The Food Revolution is about standing up for Real Food and getting children excited about food and cooking. This is the philosophy of Little Cooks Club, so it’s the perfect match and why we are ambassadors for this wonderful project.
We’re constantly thinking of new ways to involve people in the joy of cooking, and what better way to do that than through a good competition! The competitions that we’ve put on to date include our first nationwide Frosting and Fondant Cake Decorating Competition in 2013. Watch this space, there are more exciting competitions to come.
20-week New Food Challenge
The idea behind this challenge is to start introducing something fun into your family’s regular daily routine. Cook together as a family, learn a little more about a specific food and how it effects your body. It’s a family game and the children can also look up more healthy recipes using the ingredients. The fun part: you get points for eating it that week and you start a reward chart with your kids.
Healthy Lunch Box Challenge
Our “Challenge” is to get children eating healthy food at school during school times (08h00 – 13h00). We are only concentrating on during school, not after school. If all children are getting good, healthy food, they will all be forced to eat healthy food with their peers. Personally, I find that I will make a healthy lunch box and then my child will go and eat everyone else’s food… Drives me insane.
