"I particularly like the way Food Challenge works directly with children. They don't just jet in with big ideas from food companies. Food challenge grows organically with real people, real lives and real food. It's really good."

Rosie Tomlinson

The Wiltshire Food Challenge offers:-

fun food related activities with children and young people at clubs and schools.

ideas, advice, support and planning with schools and children's organisations to help them to put on their own food related activities.

a schools workpack that can be used on its own or can be run for you but the Food Challenge Team

The schools Workpack development was funded by the Wiltshire Children's Fund with additional support from Barnardos and the Healthy Schools Initiative Team.

The workpack was developed with children, using methods and lesson plans that were thoroughly tested in schools

"I must comment on how much I liked the emphasis on the enjoyment and experimentation aspects of food and cooking. I'm sure this approach will be received very enthusiastically by the children of the schools that opt into the programme."

In trials, children aged between 5 and 13 gave a positive response and asked to be involved in future Food Challenge cookery projects.
