In the UK, Cargill has been supporting Kiddy Cook since 2010 to help build nutrition awareness among children in a fun and interactive way.
Kiddy Cook’s mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people across the UK by helping them make informed choices towards a healthy lifestyle; to inspire them to have fun with food; and to give them vital skills they can use again and again.
The sessions have always been fun and interactive for the children who participate. In light of the pandemic, it was critical to adapt. Cargill is proud to support Kiddy Cook’s launch of a new interactive online learning platform, to ensure continued accessibility to this program.
This platform will expand Kiddy Cook’s outreach, delivering online classes for children and young people on all aspects of health and wellbeing as well as giving insights into future careers in the food industry. The platform will be available for both schools and at-home learning.
Interviews with Cargill employees was part of this effort to help young people accessing the online platform to learn more about careers in the food industry from an employee perspective, as well as learn more about what we do in the food ingredients space.
