Children at Downside Primary School in Luton had the chance to get creative in the kitchen with a helping of food education from Cook School on 2nd July, thanks to a partnership with local business Electrolux.

Marking its 100th anniversary, Electrolux has made a global commitment to take action on food-related challenges, with a mission to inspire and engage 300,000 children, consumers and professionals to adopt better food habits and sustainable ways of cooking by 2030.

Aiming to provide children with the skills needed to cook well-balanced, sustainable meals and educate families on the importance of nutrition for long-term health, Cook School, aided by Electrolux employees, helped 300 kids make mouth-watering oven-baked vegetable samosas – a cost-effective recipe designed to minimise food waste and created especially for children to recreate for their families at home.

UK head of marketing for Electrolux Chris George said: “Research shows that children who learn to cook at a young age tend to make healthier food choices throughout their life. With this in mind, Zanussi and Cook School will team up to host weekly cooking classes to inspire better choices for children and families across the UK and in turn make a real, positive difference to childhood obesity, diabetes and food wastage.”

Cook School founder Amanda Grant added: “With the much-valued volunteers from Electrolux and mobile Zanussi ovens, we’re really excited to bring Cook School classes to Luton primary schools.”

Following the Luton launch, the initiative will be rolled out nationwide, with Zanussi and Cook School providing weekly cooking classes to 10 schools by September 2019.
