Re sausage meat. I used to run a Woodcraft group with a doctor. He was rally concerned about the use of sausage meat with young children as there is a risk of picking up nasties if they lick fingers, or don't wash hands afterwards VERY well. you could use Granose vegetarian sausagemeat. Anyone remember good old Sosmix.

 

We do pizza on scone base so we can mix that ourselves. Cheese scones, cheese straws, vege soup, coleslaw, fruit kebabs, various salads.

 

we don't do flapjacks as there isn't much for children to do unless you let them melt.

 

We have been known to make burgers from scratch (although that was older children.)

mars bar cake!!! Yummmmmmm

 

Just melt mars bars gently and stir in rice krispies, press into a baking tray and leave to cool, spread melted choc on the top if you want. Cut into squares SIMPLES!!!!!

 

 

Or pizzas, buy pizza bases and do you own thing, either big ones or use cutters to cut small individual ones (then find some ducks to feed the scraps to xD:o )

Ah - didn't know that about sausage meat. Have to say I haven't ever used it with children - I just like making them for myself and they are really easy which is why I suggested it!

Hi

 

I have two recipe booklets that I have made, both the 20 recipes in that I've made with groups of reception children in our after school cookery club. I've tried to upload them but it says it's failed. Maybe you can't add publisher files to the forum? (if anyone can tell me how to resolve this I will try to add them on)

 

If anyone would like to PM me I'd be happy to send you them via email.

 

Thanks Nicky.

Hi kate

 

Everyone has to make their own decisions about whether to continue to use Sparklebox resources in the light of what we now know. Whenever anyone mentions sparklebox I provide the link again to Steve's post just so that all members can access this information, not to make any comment on the person who mentioned the Sparklebox resources.

 

Sorry if you felt a bit 'got at'!

Hi

 

We were lucky enough to have a food writer as one of our mums at the nursery I worked at and she specialised in books for cooking with children. The recipes were very well tested with small children and so if you feel like investing in a cook book her books would be a good bet.

 

Here is her website and from the from page you can see a list of all of her books.

 

Hope this helps

I was a bit alarmed at Archie handling raw chicken though..... not sure about that bit but otherwise a fab site. When I peeked just now they've uploaded a no-bake chocolate tiffin. That would be great for after school club, YUM :oP

Hi there

 

If I' ve managed to convert my document into a pdf, attached should be the cookery booklet I created for use in my afterschool cookery club. I'll post the other booklet asap. Sorry it's taken so long to work out how to do it just like many others on the fourm I'm plodding on with my dissertaion.

 

All the recipes are tried and tested, & loved by staff & pupils.

 

Hope you like it Nicky XXX
