Top chef talks to school children about nutrition

Curtis Stone, a famous Australian chef, recently talked to pupils at a Sydney school about the importance of eating healthily.

The chef held cooking demonstrations with the pupils and spoke of the importance of breakfast.

Stone visited Bondi Beach Primary School, spending time with the school children and encouraging them to follow their dreams. He also spoke of the importance of a healthy diet, which includes a nutritious breakfast each day.

Despite travelling to Los Angeles later that same day, Stone was relaxed and took his time while chatting with the pupils and helping them to cook. According to the primary school’s Principal, Maria Hardy, Stone covered a range of topics, including how to grow your own vegetable garden, followed by ideas incorporating vegetables and fruit into recipes.

The school children asked Stone about his career and why he had decided to become a chef. Mrs Hardy was pleased to see that the chef encouraged both boys and girls to become involved with cooking.

In a recent article that appeared in the Huffington Post, Stone outlined the reasons for why he started to think about the food that he eats, especially in regards to breakfast. He said that he first became concerned with his diet when he became a dad.

Many parents share the same concerns in wanting their children to eat a healthy diet. One of the ways that schools can help is to introduce healthy tuckshop foods. Lincolnshire is just one area in the UK where schools are trying to improve the diets of their pupils.
