Read­ing and eat­ing

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - EVENTS -

Faver­sham’s Mack­nade Fine Foods has joined forces with early read­ing ex­perts Read­ing Fairy for a pro­gramme of half-term events to launch its new in-store ac­tiv­ity sheets. Com­bin­ing a love of good food and a pas­sion for sto­ry­telling, the four free ses­sions fea­tur­ing The Run­away Pan­cake & The Lit­tle Red Hen are aimed at chil­dren be­tween one and six. Ses­sions take place on Tues­day and Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 13 and 14 at 10am and 11.15am. The sheets aim to get chil­dren to ex­plore new pro­duce and think about where their food comes from.

Read­ing Fairy founder Emily Guille-mar­rett said: “Healthy eat­ing and learn­ing to read are crit­i­cal to a child’s fu­ture life chances and well-be­ing. We have been run­ning Read­ing Fairy classes for pre-school chil­dren at Mack­nade since day one and hope our free events this half term will in­spire chil­dren to love both good food and sto­ries.” Mack­nade’s Rosie Collins added: “We have been work­ing with Emily since she founded Read­ing Fairy and it’s been won­der­ful to see it grow. We are thrilled to be team­ing up this half term in the hope of spark­ing plenty of en­thu­si­asm.”

The ses­sions take place in the events space above the café. No need to book.
