Celebrity chef and new Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith has been announced as a patron of the Children’s Food Trust’s Let’s Get Cooking Programme.

The Let’s Get Cooking programme is a network of school cooking clubs in the UK that aims to get more children eating better.

Prue Leith, said: “Cooking is an essential skill and should be taught in schools year in year out. Let’s Get Cooking is doing a great job but we’re filling a gap we shouldn’t have to.

“If food education was part of every child’s curriculum at school, so that every child was taught about food, learned to cook, and was encouraged to eat a decent diet, we’d go a long way to solving the obesity problem in the space of one generation.”
