Healthy Eating

Whatever your views on the new Government, lets hope they do more to tackle the growing child obesity in the UK and find some funding for schools to start to educate children early about eating healthily!

Dorchester-On-Thames Cookery Session

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

carbon trust

We ran a very successful event in Dorchester-On-Thames for the Carbon Project at the weekend. In association with WRAP & Oxfordshire’s Waste Partnership, we held an interactive lunch, teaching residents how to make the most from what is normally considered waste or leftover food.

We made delicious bubble & squeak cakes with a nice dip and some bacon & egg, followed by a banana and biscuit pudding and also some chocolate chip cookies. They all then sat down and enjoyed their creations whilst receiving some tips and free recipes from the Waste Partnership.

Altogether a good day, thanks to everyone involved.

Flora Cooking With Schools

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Flora Equipment Campaign

At Pudding Pie Cookery School, cooking with Schools has been a great success for us and we are proud to support Flora’s 2010 campaign which will be their last year.

Cooking with Schools is all about putting healthy eating at the heart of the classroom, showing children how to prepare and cook healthy food – and having fun in the process.

Through this exciting initiative, Flora will provide thousands of pounds worth of cooking equipment to primary schools, equipping school staff to teach children the importance of eating well and maintaining a healthy heart.

Check out their website for more details.

Obesity ‘often set before age of two’

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Pudding Pie Cookery School

A study of more than 100 obese children and teenagers found more than half were overweight by 24 months and 90% were overweight by the age of five.

We run regular classes for children and we see a huge difference in the types of foods they eat. Some don’t even recognise common vegetables in their raw form!

If you need help in understanding healthy options or if you need to learn to cook from scratch we can help. Check out our Courses either in your own home or our Cookery School Kitchen.

Why we need to know what our kids eat!

What not to eat!

MORE Oxfordshire children are obese, according to new figures.

The Government’s child weight measurement scheme shows there has been a reduction in the number of underweight children and an increase in both overweight and obese children aged four to 11 in the county.

Every year, children in reception year, aged from four, and year six, aged from 10, are weighed and measured as part of the National Child Measurement Programme.

Their results are then calculated individually to work out their Body Mass Index (BMI), to see what their body fat percentage is. The results are analysed to see if they fall within a “healthy range” and are sent in a report to parents along with additional healthy eating and lifestyle information.

When the weight measurement scheme started in 2006, 12.2 per cent of reception pupils were classed as overweight and eight per cent were classed as obese. The figures for 2009 show the percentage of overweight four- to five-year-olds has risen to 14.6 per cent.

The number of those who are classed as obese has increased to 8.7 per cent.

This is why we feel it’s massively important that both children and parents understand what they are eating. We run regular Healthy Eating Workshops around the county or here in our Cookery School Kitchen.

Are you eating your 5 a day?

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Pudding Pie 5 a Day

Fruit and vegetables help set you up for a healthier lifestyle. Best of all, there is so much variety to choose from, all year long, there’s enough to keep even the fussiest eaters happy.

To get the best health benefits, your 5 A DAY portions should include a combination of a variety of fruit and vegetables. That’s 5 portions altogether, not 5 portions of fruit and 5 portions of veg.

With an estimated increase of 105 million hungry people in 2009, there are now 1.02 billion malnourished people in the world, meaning that almost one sixth of all humanity is suffering from hunger.

Healthy choices for kids!

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

We continue our drive to help children to learn the skills to make healthy choices in food. We strongly believe that teaching children and even parents during school years, has a huge impact on their later life-style and eating habits.
