An entrepreneur from Marlow has recently won two national awards.

Helen Burgess, who founded the Little Cook Co, won the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award for London and the East of England at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.

The award celebrates entrepreneurs who have overcome hardship to be the driving-force behind extraordinary business growth.

Following 10 years’ experience in central government senior strategy roles, which included working in the Cabinet Office and at No.10, Helen retrained in nutrition six years ago, where she specialised in children's health and wellbeing, before launching her business three years ago in 2017.

Her business, Little Cooks Co, is a monthly subscription-based recipe kit that’s posted through the letterbox, direct to kids, in a recyclable box with compostable packaging.

The box is packed with all the natural and healthy dry ingredients of that month’s delicious and nutritious recipe for kids to bake at home.

And with child obesity being a major problem in the UK, Helen was determined to make several changes to the diet of youngsters, which is why she set up her business.

This was proven with the entrepreneur winning the two awards this month.
