HOME LEARNING HUB

Learn at home with ages 5–14 with free Get Set to Eat Fresh resources.

Get Set to Eat Fresh, a free education programme from Aldi and Team GB, helps young people aged 5–14 in developing their understanding and love of fresh, healthy food, the skills they need to cook for themselves and the desire to celebrate good food with friends and family. To support parents/carers teaching at home, we've collected a selection of our great resources to help you explore fresh, healthy food, exclusive insights from Olympic athletes, and build all-round healthy habits outside of the classroom. 

Key questions

  • How can we develop our cooking skills?
  • What foods fuel Team GB (and ourselves) to great performances?
  • How can we build balanced, healthy meals?

Key learnings 

  • Describing the key features of a healthy diet.

  • Ways to express likes and dislikes and make informed, healthy decisions about food, exercise and other healthy habits.
  • Cooking skills and techniques, including knife skills, can be practised and developed over time.
