Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food set to continue in QLD

THOUSANDS of Queenslanders will continue to learn more about healthy cooking and eating after the government renewed its partnership with Jamie's Ministry of Food program.

The popular cooking course, which is the brainchild of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, was launched three-years ago and covers all the basics people need to know to enable them to make better food choices and to ultimately live a healthier life.

The 90-minute course provides people with basic education and mentoring on how to shop, how to save money and how to make quick, tasty and healthy meals.

Health Minister Lawrence Springborg said on Tuesday the partnership between Queensland Health and The Good Foundation would continue on into the future.

"Jamie's Ministry of Food has helped more than 17,000 Queenslanders learn food and cooking skills," he said.

"The Good Foundation and Queensland Health have worked together to spread the message against obesity and related chronic disease.

"Jamie's Ministry of Food is improving people's knowledge and skills about food and how to achieve better health by eating and cooking with fresh food."
