Episode 182 Helen Burgess | Little Cooks Co

Helen Burgess spent 10 years working in senior strategy roles across Government, including No.10 and Cabinet Office, until she decided to retrain in her passion – nutrition – following the birth of her son in 2013.

Deploying her skills in research, Helen discovered that parents struggled most to find healthy snacks for their kids. So this combined with a knowledge of just how powerful cooking can be in forming happy family memories, the idea for Little Cooks Co was born. A recipe box that gave time-poor parents everything they needed to cook something yummy with their children, and which also utilised Helen’s nutritional training to enhance and not hinder health.

Ian & Helen discuss;

  • Working for the government
  • Importance of nutrition
