Welcome to the Children’s Food Trust Big Cookathon 2016

The Children’s Food Trust Big Cookathon is an annual event where we aim to get the nation cooking.

All you have to do to help us to make this the biggest mass cooking event in the country is cook and eat a healthy meal from scratch together over the weekend of 22-25 April.

LGC_399_Low_resOur official recipe is the Big Cookathon Cottage Pie – a healthy version of a traditional favourite. And we have a great vegetarian version, too.

This year we’re on a mission to reclaim family mealtimes. The Big Cookathon Cottage Pie, takes its inspiration from a time when meals were eaten by families around a table at home, without the distraction of mobile phones and computer games.

With your help we can show the nation how easy it is to cook and how much fun they can have in the kitchen, whether it’s at school or home. Learning to cook is an essential life skill and we believe that by eating better, children do better. And you could be in the running to win upto £200 by uploading a photo of your event to our entry page.

Please note – by joining you are accepting the terms and conditions. You can read the full terms and conditions here.
