Baking at CADS Enhancement Centre

CADS is an acronym for “Cerebral Palsy, Autism-ADHD, Down Syndrome-Dyslexia and Slow Learners.”  Today me and Chef Gunawan was at CADS Enhancement Centre in Jalan Duta to conduct our first baking session with the kids.  Due to their special needs, we used Gluten-free flour to make the Carrot and Blueberry muffins.  I had never baked with Gluten-free flour before, but after tasting the muffins, I can say that there is not much difference in the taste.

We would like to thank Pn. Azura, the principal for giving us the chance to work with them.  Our challenge is to teach these children to eat healthier,  by incorporating fruits and vegetables in their diet and avoiding ingredients which will worsen their symptoms.   We were glad to see the children enjoying their muffins today and hopefully every week we will be able to teach them more interesting recipes.    My thanks also goes to Chef Gunawan, who is willing to help me with this bit of charity project.   His previous  working experience  in Prince Court Medical Centre has proved to be very useful.

If you have a special needs child,  CADS is planning to conduct similar workshops in the future which will be opened to the public.   We will keep you posted on this.  Take care and happy baking :)
