YKIDS wanted to host an online cooking show upon their YouTube channel in order to promote healthy eating in the local area and help families create meals within a set budget.

During the months of October - December 2019 BG Digital ran workshops in conjunction with YKIDS to train participants in the use of video production equipment. The participants were a mixture of grand parents, parents, grand children and children. Every workshop was held at YKIDS under the supervision of staff members.

The training gave the participants the opportunity to take part in the filming of two episodes of the cooking show, which would later be available on the YKIDS YouTube channel. Each episode opens with an animated sequence, which all participants took part in filming.  

This project was funded by the National Lottery.

Interviews with participants and footage from workshops held showcase the time and effort put in by BG Digital and YKIDS to train participants and create an online cooking show.
