As our children’s centre has had to cut back on some of our universal offers, the courses that The Organic Cookery School programs have enabled us to continue to offer valuable courses for all parents. We have engaged new families through the Cooking for Baby weaning course. This has been very important as what’s available from health visitors is lacking in time and the opportunity to engage in some practical activities. The course also acts a chance for parents to meet other parents so reducing social isolation. Some of these parents have gone on to other cooking courses and into other courses offered by the centre.
