MR. CHEF’ EVENT HELPS EDUCATE FAMILIES ABOUT HEALTHY EATING 

Event launches in response to research that revealed an estimated 80,000 kids aged 5-12 think that a Jaffa Cake has more Vitamin C than an orange.

Mr. Men, Little Miss and Haliborange have teamed up to create a series of interactive events to teach kids of all backgrounds about healthy eating and nutrition through games and fun cookery classes with Mr Strong. The event is in response to research that shows over half of parents in the UK struggle to engage their children in the importance of eating healthily. Research also revealed that:

  • 17% of parents surveyed feel that if they were better at cooking their children would eat more healthily

  • 15% of parents surveyed struggle to cook healthy meals for their children because they don’t have the time and 7% don’t know how

  • Over half of children surveyed think they should be eating more fruit (55%) and more vegetables (58%)

  • 30% of kids surveyed aged 5-7 did not think that broccoli counted as one of their 5-a-day

 

The Mr. Chef event will be a fun, interactive day for kids and parents where they can take part in free cookery classes, learning essential kitchen skills whilst creating a healthy dish from scratch to take home and enjoy. For those not partaking in a cookery class, the event will also be jam packed with games and activities focusing on food and nutrition, with star appearances from Mr. Strong. Children will also be given recipes to try at home and parents will be able to take part in a Q&A with a nutritionist where they can ask questions about their children’s nutrition. The event will also dedicate a select number of cookery classes exclusively for nurseries and community groups in the local area.

Notes:

  • Cookery classes must be pre-booked. Any spaces not filled will be given to attendees on the day.

  • Games and activities will be hosted throughout the day for all to partake in and does not need to be pre-booked.
