VMP was honoured when Diabetes Queensland approached us with a brief to film a cooking class for their “Need for Feed” program. The project includes 90 programs that run in schools across Queensland with around 1300 students from grades 7-10 participating.
The project included filming interviews with several students and staff at Milpera State High School while they learnt to cook healthy and delicious meals. VMP captured the meal preparation in progress as well as explored the grounds where Milpera State High had created their own veggie garden in conjunction with the program.
The result was a short and sweet video explaining the benefits of teaching young people to plan, prepare and cook healthy meals and how they can take that information home to their families and friends. With teenagers increasing their confidence in cooking, knowledge about healthy eating and creating meals at home, Diabetes Queensland hopes to tackle childhood obesity.
