Family Cookery Course
We held an after school club for families to prepare meals together, developing nutrition and cookery skills, this was a fun way for families to work together to develop their own abilities.
Cooking with children is a great way to educate them about good nutrition, what’s in season, and reading food labels. It can encourage them to eat healthy foods, especially ones they may normally refuse to try.
Children, alongside their parents, learned new cooking skills, how to plan and prepare meals , follow recipes and an understanding of how to use appliances and equipment safely. They were all given an opportunity to prepare a tasty, healthy meal which they then took home.
We look at hygiene skills too and even do the washing up!
Have a look at our pictures from our last club last term where we made Pizzas, cakes, wraps and fruit kebabs
We will be running the club again so keep an eye on our school newsletter !
