The Great Halton Bake-Off

7th February 2017

For Children’s Mental Health Week 6th-12 February 2017 Halton Health Improvement Team is launching the Great Halton Bake Off.

 The theme of 2017 children’s mental health week is to encourage everyone – adults and children - to spread a little kindness; small acts of kindness can make all the difference.

The aim of the Great Halton Bake Off is to encourage children to connect with people and talk about how they are feeling through learning and trying new recipes and sharing their experiences.

The aim is for children and their parents or carers to bake one of our three recipes at home which have been provided by Change 4 Life -

Carrot and Courgette Muffins:

Carrot and Sultana drop Scones:

Cherry Berry Crumble:

 Then we want everyone to take a photo of their baked treats and post it to your school’s Twitter or Facebook page or send it to your school via email.

Please use #5ways and #haltonbakeoff to help us spread the word.

 Each school will need to choose one winner from the entries they receive (please note the winner will need to be accompanied by a teacher/parent or carer to the final). One winner from each school will be invited to bake their winning recipe at a live Great Halton Bake Off event at Halton Stadium on Monday 15th May 2017.

Please note the closing date for sending photos of your baking is Friday 27th April 2017
