Learning to cook young leads to life long health & well being
In 2018, we were lucky enough to have a new business pal, Nestlé New Zealand. Like sKids, convinced learning to cook healthy young would lead to life long health and well being, Nestlé became sponsors of FoodStorm. Together we developed a special Collectors Edition of recipes which let children cook their way through 10 different recipes while learning about healthy eating in a fun and engaging way. Each module teaches kids about the importance of healthy eating with topics including “eat your water” and “fun with portions” while getting hands-on experience with food preparation and cooking skills.
1,100 children across 65 sKids centres around New Zealand enjoyed the opportunity to tackle the 10 N4HK Foodstorm Collectors Edition Recipes. This initiative received widespread support from foodies, nutrition experts and sporting champions alike, with the Heart Foundation approving the recipes.
A special launch event with Don Buck Primary school sKids kids was attended by Rob Waddell, Olympic Champion; Sophie Gray, Bauer Food Editor; Lily Henderson Heart Foundation National Nutrition Advisor, NZ Nutrition Foundation Sarah Hanrahan, Nestlé NZ CEO, Christian Abboud and sKids CEO, Dawn Engelbrecht.
