Children are powerful learners.
Every child can make progress in their learning, with the right help.
Big Cook Little Cook
We would like to re-introduce community and food growing initiatives to help families discover that great food can be affordable, whether you grow it yourself or not. Food is such a big part of life and we believe all children have the right to experience and enjoy healthy, great food.
With this in mind, we are in the process of applying for funding so we can re-launch our fantastic ‘Big Cook Little Cook’ programme with accompanying family recipe book !! This was a huge success when we delivered it previously and was highly praised by health colleagues and participants alike. Our ‘Great food for pregnancy’ book also offers some great recipes to support healthy pregnancies.
We are also still working on developing our community allotment, forest areas and herb garden and working closely with partners, volunteers and our enthusiastic staff team to do so!
Please keep checking here and Facebook page @AdventureHyndburnBB5 for more exciting updates about community greengrocers, our wellness centre, new community groups and big cook, little cook updates!
Food Discovery with the County Trust
Adventure Hyndburn and national education charity The County Trust are pioneering a partnership which aims to improve health and learning outcomes for children in Hyndburn schools. We will be delivering an innovative Food Discovery programme which excites young people about food and where it comes from.
We believe children have a right to experience good healthy food and to have opportunities to enjoy and achieve. Food Discovery is about enabling young people to understand and explore where their food comes from and to encourage positive, responsible choices when it comes to their diet. There are four key components to the programme which include a farm visit to explore and experience life on a working farm, cooking sessions where children can then cook with the produce they have explored on the farm, a Playground market where children can plan, source and stock their very own food market and lastly, some CPD for teachers to explore ways in which cooking, gardening and farm visits can enrich the core curriculum to broaden and sustain the impact of the programme.
We are excited to put this programme into practice, watch this space …
