A group of local children were cooking up a storm when they took part in the first of many healthy cookery workshops in Maxol Ardcavan.
Launched by Maxol's fresh food brand Moreish, the initiative aims to teach children key cooking skills and encourage them that healthy eating can be fun. Over 27 kids from across the county turned up to prepare and devour nutritious treats such as healthy flapjacks and summer berry smoothies. They also learned some important practical skills such as measuring, weighing and cooking on the hob.
The workshops are held in conjunction with Kater4Kidz, which specialises in educating children about healthy eating. Mary Harte of Kater4Kidz said that she was 'thrilled' to be part of the Maxol workshops.
Speaking about the inaugural workshop, Fergal Harrington Group Brand Development Manager with the Maxol Group said: 'We're very happy with the turnout for the first day of our children's healthy cookery workshops. It really shows there is a high level of interest among parents for their children to learn more about cooking and food. Of course, it's great fun too.'
The Moreish workshops will hit the road for now, with the next event set to take place in county Laois.
