Did you know that more than 30% of children in the UK are either overweight or obese? And statistics have shown that more children are now developing eating disorders.
To help tackle these growing issues I have created healthy cooking kits which teach children about new cultures and food around the world, whilst also encouraging them to eat more vegetables and build healthy relationships with food. Creative at its core, we focus on educating children and adults.
In light of the recent events I have made the decision to lower my target in these trying times. I understand that people need to prioritise their finances and may find it difficult to contribute as they need to support their families. I hope you are your families stay safe in these trying times.
I am a designer/illustrator/art director and all round creative of 10 years. Having worked for the likes of :
I went on to complete a course in Nutrition in Culinary Practice created by Pure Package founder, Jennifer Irvine at the famous Leith's School of Food And Wine. I then made a short TV appearance on one of Britain's most loved cooking programmes.
If you pledge £20 or more you and your little chef will get to learn how to cook the recipe as seen one of Britain's most loved cooking shows, only available on Crowdfunder!
As a small team of 1, I have created everything myself. From the website, to the branding, to the photography. This makes me investable as a person because I have a varied skillset which others would usually use early funding for. This means your money would help to take this project to the next level.
How your pledge will help...
My vision is huge, but to make this bigger, better and available to all I need your help. Your pledge will help me to create:
1. New kits & make the existing one extra special
I have worked hard to make our cooking kits a one size fits all. But I have the vision to expand upon that. Everyone is different and depending on age and experience, you may have the need for something a little more challenging, or maybe a little less challenging. Maybe you like healthy baking or want something based on our Great Groceries characters to focus solely on nutrition. Whatever it may be, I have the ideas and the passion to make it come to life.
2. New products
Our cooking kits aren't just cooking kits. We encourage children to learn new languages and curricular subjects, discover cultures and develop literacy and art skills. We even teach them about eating seasonally and why it's important for us and the planet. In a nutshell: we teach everything from field to fork. But that's not enough. I have the vision to create recipes books (with a twist), visual food diaries, activity books, story books. I would love Not Just Nibbles to be affordable and accessible to everyone to help us combat #ChildhoodObesity.
3. Reach a wider audience and get into schools
We all know how stretched our education system is and unfortunately education around nutrition isn't the top priority. Which is why I would love to work with schools on rolling this out to improve overall health, mental well-being and change the quite-frankly, unfair reputation, vegetables have.
About our rewards...
We have given you a range of awards to choose from, big and small, all with the aim of helping out your local community. Statistics from Public Health England show that children from deprived areas generally have higher rates of childhood obesity. By pledging in this campaign, we will donate boxes to those who would benefit most in your area. If you have a preference of a particular charity or school however, please let us know and we will do our best to work with them.
All donation pledges will be delivered with a thank you card with your name on it (unless you state otherwise). We hope you will join us and support our mission so we can continue to do great work.
