It’s been a long year but an eventful one – thank you to everyone who has planned, come along to a session, or cooked at home in one of our recipe clubs, shared a kids food activity idea on social media – you’ve been part of our fun food revolution 🙂

We’ve appeared in over thirty different venues in six different areas, cooking everything from asparagus to wraps. You can see just a fraction how much the team have achieved on our blog but here are a few highlights…

A Recipe Club in partnership with the whole ‘Early Help’ team in Waltham Forest Council, we’ve been delighted at how full of fun and new ideas this project has been and the feedback has made us so proud. “It’s building parent’s confidence…” “He’s trying new things…” are among the many pieces of great feedback we’ve recieved!

FOURTEEN new session leadersthe most we’ve had in a year yet I think AND we’re not done yet!

“I think it was the combination of all the different information, guidance, resources and friendly readily available support that has given me the confidence to get out there…Without this I would never have felt able. Thank you!”

“Definitely trying out new foods…”

“We’ve been making it at home…”

“So great to have new ideas for my daughter’s allergies…”

Next year we’ll be training and building a hub in a new area thanks to funding from Wychavon District Council – linked in with their community larders, food banks and pre-schools.  We’re so excited they have put this belief into our way of working!

All our hubs are planning sessions in existing and new venues and we’ll be launching more training too.  Please stay connected, join the network and tap us up for tips over the Christmas period, or plan how you can use us to bring Kids Kitchen to your area in the new year…

Take care, stay warm and keep your fire burning 🙂
