Motion text

That this House recognises the importance of people having the knowledge, life skills and abilities to make healthy choices for themselves and their families; notes that research shows that practical cooking skills are vital to understanding the importance and make up of a healthy diet; expresses concern that without such skills and knowledge, people do not have the freedom to exercise meaningful control over their diet and food intake and tend to over-rely on pre-prepared or takeaway foods; and so urges the Department for Education to guarantee provision for every secondary school pupil to receive at least 24 hours of practical cooking lessons at Key Stage 3 in its review of the National Curriculum.
