GREAT BRITISH COOK OFF: Would you like more cookery lessons in school?

Polls

22nd July 2019

GREAT British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain believes that schools should have more cookery lessons.

The star chef says that cooking could boost young people’s mental health and help combat the nation’s weight issues, as obesity is a growing problem in the UK.

Not only will cooking lessons positively educate schoolchildren on the balance and joy of food, but they will also make you feel good, Nadiya says. “Cooking is about celebration, about love,” she said.

Nadiya also believes that “learning how to put a rainbow on your plate” will make sure you have a balanced diet and eat well. What do you think?

Would you like more cookery lessons in school?

Totally! I would LOVE to have cooking lessons at school.?

I think we should get more (especially in primary school) because it gives us skills and you might never know you would want to be a baker or cook.

I don't have cookery lessons in my school.

At our school we cannot have cooking lessons because there is no spare room because we’re not allowed by the government to make big changes in the school because it is a Georgian Grade II building.

Absolutly ! Cooking and baking are the passions of my life! That might sound cheesy , but it is true!

At my old primary school, we did loads of maths and English lessons but we didn’t do any cooking as part of the curriculum. They’re was a after school cooking club, but in primary schools there’s just not enough cooking lessons going on for everyone not just the people who want to do it

Of course, I would love it! I really like cooking! (Though I hardly get a chance to do it) :(

We get the choice to go to a cookery club at my school but it certainly would be hard for a vegan because the main things that they cook are cheese toasties, (boring), margherita pizzas, ( delicious, but boring). Also, most schools might say that they cater for vegans and vegetarians (the healthier diet styles) but actually don't. So schools would have to improve their catering services if the children will have 'a balanced diet and eat well'. More cookery lessons and cookery clubs would be good to teach the students about an actuall healthy diet.

Definitely! Cooking 🍳 is a life skill and everyone needs to know how to do it.

mollyboo8 · 1 year ago

I would because me and my dad sometimes bake at home so I would like to do it in school because we don't do it there.

emily2009 · 1 year ago

In school we don’t do cookery lessons

catfan123 · 1 year ago

I don’t have any, apart from in my younger years

I'd definitely say yes, especially in primary schools. We used to have a cooking day, once a year, at our school, but for some reason, they stopped. I would really like to do cooking at our schoolagain!
