Healthy Eating Cookbook


Guest
 Share

Recommended Posts

I have recently started a cookery club for Years 1 and 2 children in my promary school. However the school has Healthy Eating status and am running out of ideas for recipes. Have done fruit kebabs and all the obvious ones and am struggling now. Does anyone know of a good cookbook for Kids with Healthy Recipes???

I started this club in at the beginning of term after lots of my new children and parents have been entering my classroom in the mornings telling me how much they don't like their new class etc. Some of the kids are even refusing to eat their dinners at school cause they are that upset. Despite all the continuing the learning journey stuff my poor children are sat doing worksheets all day and they just can't cope. I feel really guilty as I chose not to get more formal in the Summer Term as my head assured me it was not the way to go, however I now have at least 3 mums every morning in my class complaining to ME. I keep telling them to speak to the new teacher and have even made the teacher aware of this but she seems to be doing nothing. Anyway, rant over. Hate seeing the kids upset and can't believe there sat writing all day hence my cookery club.

Sorry for the long post - any ideas for recipes/books would be greatly appreciated.

Last week I borrowed my daughter's smooth maker and our Nursery children made smoothy lollies - very healthy eating! We used lolly makers from the pound shop and had 2 tins of canned fruit in natural juice - 1 fruit salad, 1 peaches - once whizzed up the children used the tap to pour the right amount into each mould. We then froze them to eat the next day and everyone loved them. The lolly moulds weren't too big either - I think we had more than enough mixture for 24 lollies! We took photos of us making them and then eating them. We are going to put them in our own Healthy Eating recipe book which can be borrowed by families and they can add their own recipes too!

The annabel karmel books are great too! Don't know if i spelt her name right! She does toddler recipes, but also dinners and simple things that the whole family could eat, don't know how easy they all are to make, but i seem to remember that i wasn't intimidated by them and my cooking is about Year 1 standard. I am sure that they would give you some good ideas anyway.

My sister has written a book published by Featherstone Education called Snack Time, it is part of their Key Issues series. I think it is fantastic (of course!!) and this has lots of good things to make for and with the children and ideas to brighten up your snack time selection,. Lots of good web site and book links as well.
