Fantastic day

Posted: 29 Apr 18 17:32
I just wanted to write to you on behalf of year 4/5 pupils and staff who had a fantastic day working with you. The teachers were really positive and were impressed by the engagement of all the pupils in your sessions. Staff felt you were great with our pupils and yet again Roots to Food have delivered an excellent day

Fabulous Cooking Workshops!

Posted: 23 Feb 18 09:18
Thank you Darren for the wonderful cooking workshops that you delivered at our school this week. Your enthusiasm and passion for cooking and healthy eating really inspired our pupils and staff. There was a buzz in each workshop as children got stuck in with the preparing and cooking of food. We were all amazed at the finished product and many pupils were excited to go home and have a go at cooking the recipe with their families. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

Food is now fun!

To see all the children so excited and engaged about nutrition was amazing!

I saw this event from both the perspective of a teaching assistant and a parent and was so impressed! Darren made food fun, nutrition relevant, and taste the be all and end all. My 5 year old daughter loved the fitness and food facts and even though I consider myself a competent cook I also learnt some great new tricks and ideas. I will definitely use the recipes given and also let my daughter help more as I’ve seen how hands on experience builds such confidence in even the most shy personality. Thank you Darren, great job!

Presentation 'a breath of fresh air' the way you taught the children

Posted: 30 Jan 18 22:04
One of our teachers came to see me and told me that your 'Roots to Food' workshops yesterday were the best thing that had happened in the school for a long time. She said that it was brilliant and your presentation was a breath of fresh air in the way you taught the children about nutrition and healthy food. The children really enjoyed the day and were amazed by the speed in which a very appetizing fish dish could be cooked so quickly. I was so disappointed to miss the day but delighted to hear that there will be an opportunity for you to return next year with another workshop. I hope to get back to you very quickly to reserve a date. Thank you for sending me the recipes which I will forward to all our staff and put them in our newsletter this week.

I am very grateful that you were able to come to visit us yesterday and teach us all so much about healthy eating. Nutrition and cooking are life skills which several teachers felt we need to devote more time to.

On the subject of fish the children promise to understand more about the categories from your visit!

I have had some lovely feedback from the children about the 'cook off' on Friday12th January, they were all so enthused and they are already trying out the recipes! They also (you will be pleased to know), agree that we have some way to go to try and understand the subject of fish a little better!

Thank you once again. We are planning the logistics for your next visit.
