Brita teams up with Kids' Cookery School

Brita and the Kids' Cookery School have teamed up to promote their joint-belief that every child should have the opportunity to learn and to cook.

The water filtration company's aim is to support the charity on its mission to teach children to make healthy, informed decisions about food and drink by hosting cookery lessons in local schools and clubs.

Sarah Taylor, marketing director of Brita, explained: "This partnership is something close to our hearts and timely with the recommendations outlined in the School Meals Action Plan.

The Government has agreed to make cooking compulsory for children up to 14 years. But this won't happen overnight, and to fulfil their recommendation they're going to need the support of charities such as the Kids' Cookery School."

Fiona Hamilton-Fairley, founder of the Kids' Cookery School, said: "The Kids' Cookery School has been running for 13 years in response to the gap left when cooking fell off the school curriculum. We're thrilled to be working with Brita: water is great for hydration and it plays a vital role in healthy cooking and the running of professional kitchens, too."
