Lindy’s Gems Foundation is a CSR platform of Lindy’s Events, which was birthed to address the social development needs of children in less privileged homes. The 2016 theme, The Art of Cooking, was chosen as a conducive tool to get both children from less privileged and other homes in the same environment with no bias to status.
Promoting healthy diet and lifestyles and encouraging consumption of vegetables is part of Nestlé’s commitment to Nutrition, Health and Wellness to enhance the quality of life of individuals and families.
Children are more likely to eat what they have cooked themselves. Whilst they are growing up, it is important to provide them with culinary skills or food knowledge. Through Home Economics clubs at schools, these children are getting engaged in cooking experience and the culture of nourishing & healthy cooking is being nurtured in them. The cooking classes started on the 26th of September and ended with a Junior Chef Challenge on Saturday, October 22, 2016.
. The grande finale contest (styled after Master Chef) hosted over 300 children, professional chefs and institutions
This Lindy’s Gems initiative, the 8th in a series of successful events by the Foundation, is about empowering
children through the art of cooking and this is a worthy project that MAGGI®, is proud to stand behind with the message of wholesome cooking habits.
