Private workshops are available for groups of at least 4,  either in your home or mine  Prices start at just £30 per person and include free email support for up to 4 weeks after attending a workshop!  Weaning sessions also receive a free copy of my weaning video.  Useful to share with your partner or any other person caring for your baby.

Introduction to Weaning Babies

There is a lot of confusion over when and what to feed babies, and so this is a very popular workshop!

  • When to start weaning babies
  • Baby-led weaning vs puree
  • Commercial baby foods vs homemade

Cooking Classes

For Children age 6+

These fun cooking workshops take place in my central Crouch End kitchen and are designed for children and teenagers.  After-school courses and one-off holiday sessions are available.  Book here

In small groups we will cook yummy food, in addition to discussing the various elements of healthy eating in a positive, age-appropriate way.  At the end of the session we lay the table and sit and eat the meal we have prepared – fantastic for encouraging a picky child to try new food!  …and there will be something delicious to bring home for you too!

University students and teenagers;  Duke of Edinburgh Award

Cooking, menu-planning, hygiene and nutrition are essential life skills. Send your son or daughter to university, safe in the knowledge that they will eat well!   And do contact me if your son or daughter is looking for a cooking class for the skills section of the D of E award.

Nannies, au pairs and childminders

We all care about what we feed our children, but what happens when you hand over that responsibility to someone else?  Nannies and au pairs are often young , living away from home for the first time, and can have varying cookery skills.  These classes can be tailor-made according to your requirements, and can include food hygiene, basic nutrition and menu-planning, in addition to developing cooking skills.  Download further information here

Cooking Parties for Children

I also run cooking parties for groups of up to 12 children.  These can be in my home or yours.  The children will make their own birthday tea, including cakes! …and the birthday child gets to design and create their own birthday cake too. Suitable for children of age 8 and over.  Email me – Sam.perkins@happyeaters.co.uk to discuss availability and your requirements.
