The program put emphasis on instilling these concepts in the young chefs, while building their confidence in cooking and making it a fun interactive experience in a friendly and safe environment. The program was also planned to motivate and attract kids to have some excitement and fun with the guardian/mother/father in the kitchen during the coming month Ramadan.    

Participation certificates were presented to all the Little Chefs who took part in the program.
