Through such engagements, children, who are the future of any economy, grow interest in sectors like ours and if guided well by their parents and support systems, grow to do well for themselves in future,” adding that; “I therefore urge you to encourage your children to participate in the Easter Bake-off. The deadline for registration is Thursday 25th March 2021and considering the SOPs in place, the competition is limited to 20 children so well be taking them on based on a first come, first serve approach.”
