Building cultural awareness when delivering healthy eating messages

The UK consists of a diverse population with roots from all across the globe. Join us for a webinar on ways to engage with pupils from different cultural backgrounds.

Description

Join Georgine and Ewen for a webinar on ways to engage with pupils from different cultural backgrounds.

The UK consists of a diverse population with roots from all across the globe. Building awareness of respective food cultures helps us to understand the culinary history and importance of the wide range of foods that have become increasingly available. Exploring different flavours, ingredients and cooking techniques can help boost confidence in the kitchen, which can underpin a healthy, varied diet. This also supports an inclusive classroom, where food becomes a common language and shared experience for students.
