I would like to share our thanks for the brilliant Cook Stars sessions you have facilitated for us at Barnardo's Achieving Change Together Service (ACT).
Our children/young people have learnt valuable life skills during the sessions from the safe use of knives, chopping, weighing, mixing and following recipes. They have understood the importance of personal hygiene whilst cooking and cleaning/tidying up before during and after.
They have had lots of fun tasting ingredients - including a few of whom were adamant they didn't like to try new food but with encouragement they took huge steps and tasted a variety of foods new to them.
One family have sent their thanks and said "Our daughter has the most lovely time at the sessions, she is over the moon that she can attend and we are proud of the progress she has made".
Another family have said "M***** has absolutely loved cooking with Barnardos, it has given her opportunities to socialise with others, thank you so much"
