My children are always being told to eat healthy and to be active. What does that mean to children? Not much, if you ask me they understand so much better when they see, touch and taste and that's why Tesco have launched the Tesco Eat Happy Project for children. An initiative to educate children in not only healthy eating but as to where the food they put in the mouth comes from. With this they offer FREE Cookery Courses but I will warn you, these got booked up fast so if you want your child to have a place on the FREE Let's Cook Courses as part of Tesco's Eat Happy Project, then you need to move now! There are spaces available as we speak but they will go quickly.
My eldest son was on the verge of being underweight and I got him interested in eating by taking him to farmers markets. He is now a healthier weight and shows a healthy interest in what he is putting in his mouth. That's why I really like this initiative, it's not just about eat this, do that and live longer. It's about where your food comes from and the kids get hands on experience making something to eat.
Not all Tesco stores participate but there's a good amount that do and are spread across the United Kingdom. The courses are absolutely FREE of charge and span over three days with each class lasting around two hours. Children are split into two different age brackets: 5-7 years old and 8-11.
At the class, your child need not take anything along, as they will be provided with an apron and ingredients. It's a FREE, fun and educational activity for our children during the school holidays. What more could we ask for?
