About the Programme



A typical Nestle Cook for Life Session runs for approximately 2 ½ hours, usually with a group of approximately 25 students, and 3-4 facilitators.

Sessions commence with an interactive nutrition talk, facilitated by our trained Nestle Cook for Life nutritionist, followed by a short safety briefing and recipe demonstrations.

Students then break into small groups, working together to follow a recipe and prepare a healthy meal - including food preparation, cooking and clean-up.

Students sit down to eat together and share the meals they have prepared.

After eating, students reflect on what they have learned, how they can use this learning in the future to help make better food and lifestyle choices and how they can share their new skills with their wider whanau and community.
