Head Dogsbody, Deirdre
My name is Deirdre and I am mum to 3 loud, funny, annoying, busy children born in 2006, 2009 and 2011. I love cooking and have a passion for healthy eating - especially where my children are concerned! I completed a BTEC in Nutrition and Health Coaching and an ITEC in Diet and Nutrition at the Irish Institute of Nutrition and Health in 2016.
I set up The Cool Food School with the mission of teaching children of all ages about eating, cooking and loving healthy food.
Head Gardener, Alison
Hi, my name is Alison and I have a passion for growing my own food as well as healthy eating, especially food straight from my own garden - there's nothing better!
I did the same course as Deirdre (Btec in Nutrition and Health Coaching at IINH) because I wanted to improve my own health which has suffered in recent years. I understand the link between food and health and now know how to eat in a way to maximize my health and energy levels.
I love working with the children in The Cool Food School and sharing my love of growing fresh food with them.
