childhood obesity", "metaDescription": "", "body": "

Getting kids to make brave food choices with fresh, healthy food they grow, harvest and prepare is part of the mission of the Empower food education programme,\n which is marking World Obesity Day on 11 October with two great vegetarian pizza recipes - one with a cauliflower base and the other for recommended tasty toppings all kids will love making and eating.

\n

The Empower programme, run by not-for-profit partners Garden to Table and Life Education Trust, equips Kiwi kids with practical, hands-on knowledge about\n nutrition and growing food. It was launched in March this year and already, schools all over the country have signed up.

\n

Garden to Table Ambassador Niki Bezzant says one of the keys to solving the obesity crisis is education.

\n

\"It’s a big part of the picture when it comes to helping the next generation live longer, healthier lives than us. Programmes like Empower that help kids\n join the dots between growing, cooking and feeling good, are crucial.”

\n

Food education programmes recommended by World Health Organization 

\n

In fact, food education programmes like Empower were recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) in a 2016 report on ending childhood obesity. The\n report said nutrition and health education must be included in school curriculums, and to make food preparation classes available to children, their\n parents and caregivers.

\n

Life Education Trust Chief Executive John O’Connell said through classroom and practical hands-on learning, Empower is designed to equip and empower children\n with the knowledge of a balanced diet, meal planning, key nutrients and how to grow food.

\n

“The WHO’s report on ending childhood obesity identified the importance of teaching children in schools about nutrition, and also food preparation. We\n support teachers to integrate NZ Curriculum-linked resources into their teaching – both inside and outside of the classroom. Schools don’t need huge\n vegetable gardens or commercial kitchens to get involved either,” he says.

\n

Growing the vege love

\n

One of the most effective ways to make a difference to our children's health is to make eating healthy food a joy, Garden to Table Executive Officer Linda\n Taylor says.

\n

This week, she invites children to make a pizza using Niki's recipes and to post photos of their efforts on Facebook and Instagram.

\n

\"It's easy and fun to include seasonal veges in your cooking, and letting children take the lead can be a great way to get them involved. We're looking\n forward to seeing the creative ways children have prepared Niki's pizza recipe, using lots of veges.\"

\n

We are delighted to advise that the MediaWorks Foundation has selected Garden to Table as a National Charity Partner for 2017/2018.\n
\n

\n

The Mediaworks Foundation’s vision is that every child and young person in New Zealand has the chance to reach their full potential. They work very\n closely with selected national charities to develop strategies and campaigns that inform and influence, raise mass awareness and funds to support\n each charity’s community outcomes.

\n

Sarah Cotter, Head of the MediaWorks Foundation, says: \"We are very excited to work in partnership with the Garden to Table Trust for the next year\n through the MediaWorks Foundation's National Charity Partnership Programme. Giving kids opportunities to get their hands dirty and to grow, harvest,\n prepare and share real food will make a real difference to how children think and engage with food. It's so important to understand where food\n comes from, and we believe that teaching kids from an early age will help them to make better food choices as they grow up.\"

\n

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Sarah and the MediaWorks Foundation Managing Committee for their support of Garden to Table. This\n is a wonderful opportunity for us to ensure primary schools all around New Zealand are aware of the Garden to Table food education programme and\n how to integrate it into their own school curriculum. We can’t wait to get started!
