Looking for a way to keep your kids busy during lockdown school holidays?

Jamie’s Ministry of Food’s national online school holiday program, run by The Good Foundation, could be the answer.

The Good Foundation chief executive Siobhan Boyle said that many participants have said that the program makes them feel more connected to the outside world.

“Our school holiday program will teach students aged 12 and up the basics of food, nutrition and cooking, as well as some of Jamie’s special tips and tricks,” she said.

Participants will learn how to make meals from scratch, by baking, grilling, sautéing, boiling and roasting fresh ingredients.

“Studies show that kids who learn to cook take their skills well into adulthood and have improved overall health and wellbeing. That’s why our programs equip people of all ages with skills that make it simpler and quicker to cook healthy, delicious meals.”

Jamie’s Ministry of Food is committed to improving the nutritional education and cooking skills for locals and priority groups.

The program will run across both weeks of the school holidays.
