International Chefs Day 2016 in Singapore
Oct 23, 2016
To celebrate International Chefs Day tomorrow (20 Oct), Nestlé Professional, Singapore Chefs' Association and SG Enable, collaborated on a Nestlé Healthy Kids programme to give back to the community in a meaningful way.
Last Friday (14 Oct), 26 teenagers from four special needs schools in Singapore donned on their chefs hats at the Enabling Village for a creative cookout with local chefs.
Students from Metta School, APSN Delta Senior School, Lee Kong Chian Gardens School and Pathlight School learnt first-hand about preparing healthy meals from Singapore’s chefs. This year’s event theme “Art on a Plate”, saw kids playfully express themselves in the kitchen with edible artworks. This was the first time that the kids got to work in a fully-equipped kitchen under the close guidance of professional chefs.
Mr Chow Phee Chat, Director, Marketing Communications and Corporate Affairs ofNestlé Singapore, added: “We know obesity and diabetes have emerged as major health concerns both locally and globally.
“This initiative was aimed at directly involving our kids in creating edible artworks that celebrated their individuality and artistic flair. Ultimately, we want to cultivate good eating habits in our future generations, so that they grow up strong, healthy and happy.”
