Appliance manufacturer Belling has relaunched its Belling Cookery Club, an initiative designed to support primary schools and allow them to provide practical cooking classes for children following research that found an estimated 75% of primary schools don’t have a teaching kitchen.

Belling will award two primary schools up to £2,000 worth of cooking appliances as well as cooking accessories for children to use. The company is encouraging pupils to take a picture of their favourite nutritionally balanced meal with a description of why they like it and why it’s good for them.

Last year, Timbercroft primary school in Plumstead, London and Shawhead primary school in Dumfries, Scotland won the public vote to receive £2,000 worth of cooking appliances. “We had a great response to Cookery Club last year and we loved looking at all the entries,” said Belling marketing communications head Jane Rylands.

“We believe children get so much out of learning to cook – physically interacting with ingredients and producing their own food; learning new skills for later life and understanding what is good for them and why.”

Rylands added: “We hope that Belling Cookery Club will give some schools a valuable resource and inspire their pupils to love cooking.”
