Welcome to My Cooking Counts - a new resource that allows secondary school aged pupils to record what they cook, identify key food skills demonstrated and review the main ingredients used. It also allows them to upload a photo of their dish!  Recipes include savoury and sweet dishes, covering all major ingredient groups.

My Cooking Counts allows teachers to monitor and track pupils’ progress over time. It provides invaluable data to support reporting, focusing on what pupils cook, the type of food skills demonstrated (self-evaluation) and ingredients used. Certificates can also be generated and printed at any time. Teachers can also review progress for a Year Group, Key Stage or the entire school!

My Cooking Counts is free to use. 

Pupils can:
• Record their own recipes (and photos)
• Assess their food skills
• Track the main food groups they use (linking to health and food provenance)
• Receive certificates of achievement

Teachers can:
• Share school recipes 
• Track and monitor pupils cooking achievements and repertoire
• Explore reporting tools for school (Year Groups, KS3, GCSE and all school)

My Cooking Counts is brought to you by Meat and Education and AHDB, and developed in collaboration with the British Nutrition Foundation. My Cooking Counts is available for all secondary schools (or equivalent) in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.
