With less than one in 10 children and adolescents meeting the Australian Dietary Guidelines recommended serves for vegetables per day, the Nestlé Healthy Active Kids program is giving primary schools across the country the chance to win The Kitchen Kart.
Valued at $25,000, the fully-equipped, mobile teaching kitchen, will help teachers to deliver nutrition and cooking education, with the ability to hold classes in a hall, classroom, or even in the garden.
Teachers, parents and community members have just three weeks to nominate a school to win The Kitchen Kart, with the winning entrant also receiving $1,000 to go towards keeping their own family healthy and active.
The Nestlé Healthy Active Kids program, developed in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Sport, provides teachers with free, curriculum-based resources, online recipes and also provides tools and activities for parents to help children live a healthier life. The Kitchen Kart competition will give one lucky school the opportunity to win a fantastic asset to help turn this learning into valuable real-life experiences.
