In Jersey, over 50% of the population is overweight or obese.

The Ardian Foundation funds Caring Cooks and its Let's Get Cooking programme

This programme allows children to deepen their knowledge of nutrition and to develop skills essential to their health and well-being. In addition, teachers use food and cooking to teach history, maths, physics and other subjects in a fun way. Food waste and global warming are also topics addressed by the programme. "Let's Get Cooking" aims to help several public schools to further integrate health and nutrition into the school curriculum. The project runs for 5 weeks per academic year for 6 years.
