Downside Primary make healthier choices

Children at Downside Primary School in Luton recently got creative in the kitchen with a helping of food education from Cook School and Electrolux.

Marking its 100th anniversary, Electrolux has made a global commitment to take action on food-related challenges, with a mission to inspire and engage 300,000 children, consumers and professionals to adopt better food habits and sustainable ways of cooking by 2030.

Aiming to provide children with the skills needed to cook well-balanced, sustainable meals and educate families on the importance of nutrition for long-term health, Cook School, aided by Electrolux employees, helped 300 Downside pupils make oven-baked vegetable samosas – a cost-effective recipe designed to minimise food waste and created especially for children to recreate for their families at home.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with Zanussi, who share our passion to make a profound and positive impact on children’s lives,” says Amanda Grant, founder of Cook School. “We’re really excited to bring Cook School classes to Luton primary schools. Longer term, this partnership means Cook School will reach more schools and therefore help more children and families in the UK. By the end of 2020, we’ll deliver weekly Zanussi Cook School classes in at least 30 schools nationwide to empower children and their families to make healthier and more sustainable eating choices.”
