Nutritious food on a budget

ENCOURAGING families to become hands-on with food is the aim of cooking sessions held at Mirehouse Community Centre.

Organised by Karen Ross of Howgill Family Centre, the project helps teach people of all ages how to make delicious and nutritous food on a budget.

Youngsters learned how to work with fresh ingredients to prepare meals and to understand how enjoyable making your own tea from scratch could be.

Studies show that by encouraging children to cook from an early age they are more likely to develop the necessary life skills.

Youngsters also gained a powerful sense of achievement by discovering how to work with ingredients. And they are far more likely to eat something if they’ve taken the time to make it themselves.
