Always a great session - even in the 'new-normal'!

I nearly cancelled Darren visiting our school today but I am so glad I didn't! His clear risk assessment made me realise that we could share the healthy eating message in a safe, 'COVID secure' way. As always, Darren's enthusiasm hooked the children whilst the smooth organisation and simplicity of the meal made them realise that this was something they could do. However, the most important thing was the taste - every child loved the food because it was delicious and they were invested in it. Thank you Darren for your flexibility and making the sessions work around our arrangements and staggered timetables - it was an enjoyable and educational event.

Perfect launch to our healthy living project

Thank you for visiting us. Your comprehensive risk assessment made me confident we could have a successful but safe day on Friday. The children were so excited and very enthusiastic to tell us about what they had learned. The staff were also very enthused and it has been the perfect launch to our healthy living project for this term. Thank you for being patient with my little ones they have only just started school so I was pleased overall with how they were. The KS1 children told me all about what they had done when I went to see them. We have also had fantastic parent comments on the online learning app we use called Tapestry about how their children had been telling them all about it at home. Thank you once again and I hope things continue to move forward for you despite the challenge of COVID. Sarah

It was such a success because of you also. You present such an amazing opportunity for the children in such a calm and organised manner. Your warm and infectious personality engages every single child and they have the utmost respect for you – it’s a winning combination. I know your Gala Dinners are well-rehearsed and you have such experience in this but we couldn’t have imagined it going as well as it did. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We look forward to working with you again.

Dear Darren, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the excellent "Roots to Food" event yesterday. The staff cannot stop raving about how good it was and lots of children have said how much they enjoyed the event. Thank you so much to The School Lunch Company for funding this for us, so educational for the children in terms of healthy nutrition but also delivered in a highly interactive style for both participators and audience. Darren, your delivery style is just great, you have the sort of presence that just engages the children throughout. I would definitely recommend this to other schools. I will be in touch about dates for future events Darren. Best wishes Yvonne Stallwood- Barnes.

I was delighted to meet with you yesterday and witness first hand how beneficial your workshops are for educating our children. It was lovely to see their enjoyment and sense of achievement as they experienced chopping, stirring, cooking and tasting the food. Something that they do not get the opportunity to do very much and it is such an important life skill for them. You presented in such an engaging, interesting manner but at the same time being very aware of the safety implications of having 30 children near cookers and steamers. I admire your bravery (and patience)! It is great that you will be returning again on Thursday 20th June and I look forward to seeing another recipe being demonstrated. So many children and adults commented on the delicious aromas coming from the hall all day which certainly inspired many to try the chilli - myself included! Many thanks again for such an excellent day and for sharing your obvious love of teaching children the importance of healthy nutrition with us.
