Cooking Together

Cooking together with your children gives you the opportunity to teach children (and ourselves!) about food and how to cook. It is also a lot of fun and a great way to spend time as a family.

Food Literacy

Food literacy is understanding how our food choices impact our health and the environment. We believe making children food literate is an essential part of their education.

Reducing Sugar

Over 20% of children and teenagers are obese. The leading cause of this is consumption of too much sugar. Our aim is to help address this through education of parents and children.

Everything in Moderation

Teaching children food literacy

 

Saucepan Kids is all about teaching children about food – what to eat and how to cook it. We want our children to be healthy and be able to make the right food choices when they leave home. It’s not all about low fat, no sugar, everything must be healthy, it’s about understanding what’s good for you and what to have in moderation.

Family Food Travel

Travel is a key part of our philosophy. Not only from the experiences and memories it creates but also tying it back to our food principles.

When travelling we believe that immersing ourselves in the local culture is the key to understanding and appreciating a country or city and a key part of this is its food. Therefore when travelling we focus on the local food as well as sights, history and general tips and planning.
