It is important to equip children with the skills to eat well for the rest of their lives – teaching them to cook, exposing them to a wide range of different foods and cuisines, giving them a basic understanding of nutrition and above all encouraging them to enjoy food.
Most importantly the ability to take responsibility for what you put into your body is a fundamental aspect of developing self-reliance and self-belief.
