College’s Public Services learners get taste of Royal Marine cuisine
The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London’s students were visited by the Royal Marines last week (10 December) for a unique education on how to fuel your body with careful nutrition and physical activity.
Led by the Royal Marines, learners were put through their paces in a challenging morning session of circuit training. Having worked up a ravenous appetite, the learners headed to the College’s Tottenham Centre training kitchens to learn how to cook a nutritionally balanced meal both at home or while out on service. Learners were taught good food hygiene as well as healthy cooking options and how the Royal Marines eat to achieve top physical and mental performance.
Colour Sergeant, Mike Beaton, said: “It’s so important to know how to look after your body and also how to fuel it in the correct way whilst in the Services. We have a passion for teaching students and the best way is through these class demonstrations.”
Public Services Level 3 learner, Deran Roach, added: “Just seeing how much fresh food and vegetables were included in the demonstrations has made me think about what I currently eat and what I could be doing better.”
Curriculum Director Chris Davies added: “It’s very important for our learners to get first-hand information, which is why we regularly host visits like these at the College. Today has been invaluable.”
