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

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

Our clubs were, have been and are run by a network of thousands of volunteer club leaders and helpers. We support all of these Let’s Get Cooking champions by offering recipes, advice, expert training and practical resources.

And by sharing our expertise with many other organisations across the country including The Tesco Eat Happy ProjectIceland Foods Charitable FoundationWRAP,Veolia, London Community Fund and various primary care trusts, we have supported the delivery of cooking activities to help even more young people and adults to get cooking.
