Let’s Get Cooking is the UK's largest network of healthy cooking clubs for children and their families.

When people eat better, they do better. The aim of Let's Get Cooking is to inspire children, families and adults to learn to cook and enjoy good food, give them the skills, knowledge and confidence to get hands-on in the kitchen and make healthier food choices throughout their lives.

Are you:

  • a health improvement officer or in a public health/early years team in a local authority?
  • based in a school, education or care setting and do you want to improve the cooking skills of your pupils or service users?
  • wondering about the practicalities of setting up cooking sessions in your setting?
  • looking for resources and toolkits to support practical cookery in your setting?
  • wanting to upskill your workforce in food, nutrition, and food safety & hygiene?
  • exploring cooking as a vehicle to encourage social cohesion, to reduce isolation and address mental health issues?
