Half Term Fun at Macknade Fine Foods

Macknade Fine Foods is partnering with the early reading experts, Reading Fairy, on a programme of half term events to launch its new in-store activity sheets.

Bringing together Macknade’s love of good food and Reading Fairy’s passion for story-telling, the four free sessions featuring The Runaway Pancake & The Little Red Hen are aimed at children aged 1-6 years old. Sessions take place on the 13th and 14th of February at 10am & 11.15am at Macknade Fine Foods in Faversham.

The new activity sheets have been produced by Macknade to engage children shopping with their parents in the award-winning Faversham food hall – getting them to explore new produce and think about where their food comes from.

Emily Guille-Marrett, Founder of Reading Fairy, commented, “Healthy eating and learning to read are critical to a child’s future life chances and well-being. We have been running Reading Fairy classes for pre-school children at Macknade since day one and hope our free events this half term will inspire children to love both good food and stories!”

Rosie Collins, Marketing Manager at Macknade Fine Foods, added, “We have been working with Emily since she founded Reading Fairy and it’s been wonderful to see it grow. We are thrilled to be teaming up this half term in the hope of sparking plenty of enthusiasm from young children about reading and of course, great food & eating. We already work with a number of local schools to educate young children about food & nutrition and run daily classes for the little ones in our events space, so it is an exciting next step for us.”

The sessions are free of charge and take place in the events space above the Café at Macknade Fine Foods. Sessions run for 45 minutes at 10am (for babies & toddlers) & 11.15am (for children aged 3-6 years) and there is no need to book.
