Transcript

Presenter- 00.01

Aston Villa pride themselves on their relationship with their community. Their current project sees kids from local schools come here to use their kitchens and chefs as part of their education.

Well I’ve got quite a big head chef as you can see. Is it OK?

Chef Adam Picket - 00.25

What the children are doing – they are doing the preparation to make a healthy pasta salad. OK, Nigel Reo Coker is coming in this afternoon and we are going to put all the pasta salads together and Nigel is going to explain to them a little bit about what the players eat in regards to their healthy diets to make them (kind of , you know) quality athletes. I think it’s important that the children can aspire to professional people. What we are all about as an organisation in Aston Villa is to teach children cooking as a life skill, to ensure that when they are older they are not relying on take-aways and fast food all the time.  You know they are actually (being) able to cook.

These children, as you can see, they really enjoy the cooking but they have got nowhere to do it. Lots of schools don’t cook with them any more, especially primary schools. If they cook once a year, you know, they are very lucky.  So the opportunity for them to come to Aston Villa where their heroes are playing football and be able to cook, I think is an absolutely amazing opportunity for them.

Kevin Haywood - 01.18

We want to bring children from the most deprived parts of Birmingham into Villa Park to give them that “wow factor”. Because I remember when I first came to Villa Park and you see the stands and you see the pitch and you go “wow!”.

As soon as you’ve got the children going “wow!” you know that they are alert, they’re going to listen but most important they are going to retain the knowledge that we give them.

And what better role models can we have than footballers who want to give them the knowledge that fresh, affordable food is healthy, is nutritious, is easy to prepare and is going to help you lead a far healthier life.

Nigel  Reo-Coker - 01.58

We’re here to show just how deeply rooted Aston Villa is to the community. You know, a couple of months ago they opened a gym for local kids to come and use any time they want and today is the opening of the kitchen. It’s to promote healthy eating and healthy lifestyle to local community kids. With all the fast food and everything you know, people are looking for that quick fix. But you can get that quick fix yourself by going to a supermarket and getting fresh fish and seasoning it and then putting it into the oven and, you know, you have food in five or ten minutes which is something I do quite often after training.

Presenter - 02.23

So you are useful in the kitchen?

Nigel  Reo-Coker - 02.25

Yes, mama didn’t raise no fool.

Child 1 - 02.30

I have enjoyed today because a lot of times I do not get time to cook.

Child 2 - 02.34

I enjoyed today because I was kneading the bread and chopping.

Child 3 - 02.38

When we did the bread, we did it into a team that I kind of really enjoyed today.

Child 4 - 02.42

I met a football player from Aston Villa and I learnt how to cook.

All children - 02.47

Thank you chef Adam and Aston Villa for helping us cook today.

It was pleasant to see how Premier League clubs have commitment with their communities using programs like this.
It probabbly will. But I think it is a long term goal.
In Brazil we have a lot of social problems and differences. It's difficult to say that children in general have healthy diets when some of them are used to not have any kind of food every day.
I think it is a essencial topic. The pandemic has showed us one more time that having healthy life style provides a long life.

The video is so enjoyable to teach kids how to cook healthy food.
It will make a huge difference in their building-up and their future health as well.
All kinds of education are so important to develop a conscious society.

Food education is an important topic because we can't do without food therefore it's education is very necessary so we don't commit ourselves into what is obviously wrong.

Not all the parents realise the importance of a healthy diet from the early age I suppose. And children could adapt on it easily. They only need someone to give example.
