ANFPP Cooking Group
In the months of August and September ANFPP held four cooking and nutrition classes, the clients in the program engaged in both the theory and the practical work. Some of the things they learnt about were the food pyramid and what should your plate consist of each day and how much fruit and vegetables should be consumed.
The workshop covered the sugars and fats in common things that are sold locally , the effects of food that aren’t too good for you and how they affect
your body and energy, healthy alternatives, quick and easy healthy recipes , baby food and purees.
All the clients that attended were well engaged and loved the practical side which included prep, cutting and slicing skills, measuring, stirring, cooking,
reading from a recipe, tasting new foods, combining spices, presenting and plating. Over the four classes most clients attending all and there was
a prize for the most creative as clients got take home packs of the items that they cooked that day. Many clients were excited to about the take home
packs and couldn’t wait to cook for their own families.
