Healthy eating on Food for Thought
Written by Charlotte Reid on 29th April 2013
It might finally be the right weather for ice cream but on Food for Thought I am talking about healthy food. I have been speaking to Claire Rick, a spokesperson for the Children’s Food Trust, about how important it is for young people to eat healthily.
There’s also some best bits from previous episodes, as well as a discussion about mug cakes.

We all know that it is better to eat healthy and to cook properly, rather than just grab a takeaway. The earlier we start doing this the better in fact, which is why charities like the Children’s Food Trust have been set up. They help schools come up with healthy menus and help parents and children out with cookery lessons.
To find out more about the work that the Children’s Food Trust does and how a healthy diet helps children to pay more attention in their lessons.

Even when being healthy you can always have a little bit of cake, just be good about it. This week I tried out mug cakes. They are a student’s dream as you mix together the ingredients for a cake in a mug and microwave.
I was intrigued so tried making one, and it was a bit rubbish. It mostly went all over the microwave, so I didn’t take a photograph. But if you have had a better attempt with mug cakes, or have a recipe which works really well in the microwave, then let me know and I’ll talk about it on the show.
