International Chefs Day is almost here!

International Chefs Day is almost here!

On October 20th, we invite you to make a difference in your communities by making healthy eating fun and exciting for children. This International Chefs Day, help teach kids How Healthy Food Works!

What is International Chefs Day?

Each year on October 20th we celebrate International Chefs Day. Since its creation by esteemed chef Dr. Bill Gallagher in 2004, Worldchefs has committed to using International Chefs Day to celebrate our noble profession, always remembering that it is our duty to pass on our knowledge and culinary skills to the next generation of chefs with a sense of pride and commitment to the future.

Over the past years, Worldchefs has partnered with Nestlé Professional to teach kids around the globe about the importance of healthy eating by hosting fun-filled workshops worldwide. With your participation, we will make International Chefs Day 2019 the best one yet!

This year’s campaign theme is How Healthy Food Works. We want to show how food affects our bodies internally. Following the last two years of Healthy Heroes and Healthy Foods for Growing up, How Healthy Food Works goes deeper into what different foods do for us and why we need them.

International Chefs Day is an opportunity to teach kids about healthy eating by letting them be creative with food. With the chef’s input, education and help, the kids will be able to create recipes out of healthy foods, helping to teach the kids How Healthy Food Works.

How can you participate?

It's easy! Since last 2018, Nestlé Professional has prepared and tested recipes to encourage healthy eating. Simply visit and download the recipes, along with a toolkit with everything you'll need to organize and launch your International Chefs Day 2019 Super Workshop! Or to make this even more fun for the children, why not call it a party?

Don't forget to share your photos and fun on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and tag #InternationalChefsDay #ThisIsWorldchefs #NestleProfessional!
