Chef Activity Badge

How to earn your badge

  1. Learn the basic rules of safety and hygiene in the kitchen. Explain why
    they’re important.
  2. Talk to your leader about the different ways of preparing and cooking food.
  3. Learn what the major food groups are. How do they fit into a healthy diet?
  4. Plan, cook, serve and clear away a two-course meal for at least two people. You should prepare and cook vegetables as part of the menu. Remember, an adult must supervise you for this step. Talk to the people you’re cooking for about the menu.




Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities.  For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
