Marcus Rashford and Tom Kerridge have set up ‘Full Time: Get Cooking with Marcus & Tom’. They want
to help give children and families the skills and confidence to cook good, proper food in their own kitchens, using the equipment available to them. They hope to encourage children and their families to be creative, have fun and spend valuable time together cooking and eating.
Full Time supports the government Healthy Start scheme which provides funds to support pregnant women or those with children aged under 4 by giving them access to essential food items such as fresh, frozen or tinned fruit and vegetables, fresh, dried and tinned pulses, cow’s milk, instant formula and Healthy Start vitamins.
Tom Kerridge has created 52 easy recipes that utilises the ingredients available on the Healthy Start scheme and affordable kitchen cupboard staples. The recipes are available to download and print on
endchildfoodpoverty.org. Each recipe card also features a QR code linking to the Full Time Instagram
page where families can access cook along videos. Parents are encouraged to try the recipes and share their results via Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #FullTimeMeals.
