Younger Chef of the Year Award.

Captain Satsuma is delighted to endorse and support the Younger Chef of the Year award. This is a fantastic opportunity to promote positive nutrition with children and their families within a practical, purposeful and engaging context.  Learning basic life skills around food and cooking support their long-term health and wellbeing.  My book ‘Captain Satsuma has Landed’ compliments and enhances the award, supporting a literacy focus and reinforcing the link between what we eat and our health. ‘Captain Satsuma has Landed’ is available as an additional purchase in the award for schools at £6.99 including P&P for an individual classroom copy or as a guided reading set bundle (7 books) £44.00 including P&P. (please go to costs sectio].

About the Award
This award is for Year 2 pupils (ages 6-7) and is written by teachers for teachers. It is mapped to the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum for ‘Cooking and Nutrition.’ The award also incorporates other curriculum areas such as English, Science, Maths and Geography. The award is a ‘Family/Friend Challenge’, which can be delivered across 6 weeks, during an enrichment week or across a school year.  2 hours of teaching time is planned for each lesson.

Children learn basic chef skills, food hygiene and safety, nutrition, the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, blood sugar balance, staying hydrated and how to set the table. Cook at home recipes are also included to engage parents/carers. Each week within the classroom, children create a different course e.g. a dip for the starter with crudités, a sandwich for the main course with a side salad, a dessert and a drink.

The award is also supported by the College of Medicine and Integrated Health and accredited by the Nutritional Therapy Education Commission. Find out more at www.younger.youngchefoftheyear.com.
