(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

It has been good to find out how to use simple ingredients to create meals and snacks that otherwise would have been shop bought e. g. pizzas.

The children have learnt how to cut, mix foods together and given them confidence to do so at home.

It has also made my daughter more aware of healthy foods. She does now call them healthy foods also thanks to the hoopla game.

Whilst the venue hasn't allowed the cooking of the food prepared the process has been useful.

Response from Sophy Parkin, General Manager for Specialist Services, Health Partnerships

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments here.

It is good to hear that both you and your daughter have found the sessions educational from both a theory and practical point of view. It is also good to hear that the children have gained the confidence in preparing foods and I hope that they continue to use these skills at home.

Thank you for also raising the point that it would have been good to have had the facilities to cook the foods at the session. I am aware that they do not have cooking facilities at this particular venue. I will discuss with my colleagues whether we could introduce more non-cook recipes or make recipes utilising our electric wok.

Once again thank you for your comments.
