Children must “re-educated” on how to make fresh, healthy food choices and cook according Wanneroo resident Derrin Muirden. She hopes to help overcome the problems of Australia with childhood obesity and malnutrition, with his new company which is to eat?
She said many parents at her sons’ schools were unsure what they should feed their children, were too busy to prepare a sit-down meal for the family or gave them free rein over afternoon snacks. The latter could fill children with empty calories, meaning that by evening they were uninterested in a healthy dinner.
“I have thought for a long time that there is a definite valtrex purchase need for re-education on what kids should be eating,” Ms Muirden said. “I want to empower the children to make good food choices and be able to cook for themselves.”
She said the business developed over the past four months had been her “fourth career”. Her previous experiences in market research, clothes and early childhood product manufacturing and a partially completed home economics degree had proven useful in making her business idea a reality.
She attributed some interest in her program to the recent success of Junior Masterchef for demonstrating the benefits of teaching children to cook good food.
Her first students started this week, in age-bracketed classes using commercial kitchens at Kingsway Indoor Stadium and Beldon-Iluka Uniting Church.
Ms. Muirden said he hopes to get permission to teach in a renovated apartment in his grandmother’s house Wanneroo, allowing young charges to learn in the kitchen more like their own.
