Junior chefs kneading for others in need

Pre-schoolers Goh Yee Jie (from left, partially hidden), six, Gay Hwee Shane, five, and Tricia Chong, six, had the chance to be junior mooncake chefs yesterday.

They were among 215 children from six Kinderland childcare centres roped in to help make snowskin mooncakes to raise funds for charity.

The event is part of Kinderland's Little Entrepreneurs' Programme, which includes activities such as the sale of homemade cookies.

Through the programme, Kinderland hopes to raise $15,000 for the ARC Children's Centre, which supports children with life-threatening illnesses such as cancer. The mooncakes will be on sale at $8 for a box of four.
