Parents who want their children to eat more fruit and vegetables should give them an apron and let them cook!”

By teaching our children to cook they are more likely to grow up to be healthy adults because they have a better knowledge of cooking techniques, preparing food and new tastes.

In St John Baptist, Food Technology is taught as part of the Design & Technology carousel in a limited amount of time. In Key Stage 3 pupils will have Food Technology in Year 7 & 8, they can then opt to continue with GCSE Home Economics: Food & Nutrition or GCSE Catering in Key Stage 4.

We are very keen to encourage our pupils to cook at home, therefore, each month we will publish a healthy and seasonal dish for you and your children to try at home.
