Kinder Kitchen has been teaching in schools for over 7 years. We deliver a variety of classes and workshops to meet schools changing needs; from hands on cooking to a 10 week Healthy Eating Enterprise Project. We have helped schools achieve outstanding Ofsted results and attain their Healthy Schools London Silver Status Award.
We provide breakfast, lunch and after-school (Enrichment) clubs in both primary & secondary schools. Our classes allow children to handle fresh food, prepare, cook and eat a variety of healthy dishes. The children learn the basics of food preparation, use a variety of utensils, taste new foods, learn how to negotiate recipes plus most importantly have fun being in a kitchen environment. our classes promote confidence and a huge sense of achievement where children take pride in the end results. We write all our own recipes to a winning formula that keeps our dishes simple, tasty and quick to make.
Our bespoke workshops cover a range of current topics:
Over 10 weeks we take a group of children on an entrepreneurial and healthy eating educational journey, with the end result being a healthy product they have created, marketed, taken to market and sold at a profit.
Each weekly hour session focuses on a business topic with a specific weekly outcome such as Team Work, Market Research, Product Development and Logo Creation . Children are engaged through games and class activities, including ‘hands-on’ cookery time.
Our Enterprise Scheme is suitable for small groups of children (6-10) or can be given to a whole class of up to 30 pupils. The concept is adaptable for varying age groups with older children having more creative and strategic freedom and a greater depth of decision-making and responsibilities.
The concept includes aspects of the famous programmes ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘Dragon’s Den’. Children use their learnt entrepreneurial knowledge to sell their product as in ‘The Apprentice’ with the winning team being the one with the greatest profit. In our Edmonton Schools the children sell their final products in Edmonton Green Market and have an inter-school Dragons Den style event in the Millfield Theatre.
H.E.L.P. (Healthy Eating Lifestyle Programme)
This 8 week course of weekly hour sessions aims to inform school children about the basics of a healthy lifestyle based around food. We look at Food Provenance, Seasonality, Sugar, Wholegrains, Fats, Healthy v’s Unhealthy Foods, Portion Sizes and Home Cooking. We are unique in that each class has a practical element and involves some form of food tasting – it really engages the children and captures their interest.
