Re-embed practical cooking and other life skills, including growing food into the national and secondary school curriculum.
Why is this important?
No Irish child, boy or girl should leave school without being able to cook for themselves. Otherwise, we are undeniably, failing in our duty of care to our young people.
When you teach someone how to cook, you give them a gift that will forever enhance their lives. Our food choices affect our energy, vitality, ability to concentrate. Food affects our mental and physical health and is at the heart of the fight to tackle the climate crisis.
