Fun little Foodies is an exciting new activity class which promotes an enjoyment of food and cooking while having fun and learning new skills.
Do you have a budding little chef in your house? Fun Little Foodies is for them!
At Fun Little Foodies we are passionate about getting kids involved in food and cooking. We offer cooking classes for children aged 2.5 to 5 years in Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland. Each class is hands on, interesting and FUN!
Your child will learn cooking skills and an enjoyment of nutritious, delicious food. They will taste and explore different food types and learn about where different foods come from. Each class will also include an activity linked to the recipe, and classes incorporate skills and objectives from all of the areas in the EYFS curriculum!
We know from first hand experience how tricky it can be to get children to try new food and combat those fussy eating habits! Children are more likely to eat food they have prepared themselves in a sociable environment and once they have made it with their foodie friends they will get the recipe card to take home to recreate it for their family and friends!
What happens in a Fun Little Foodies class?
Each class begins with an introduction about the ingredients and equipment we will be using for the class recipe. Games and songs are used to encourage participation and enhance learning. We then move on to the recipe creation! All recipes involve some pre-prepared ingredients and some which the children need to count/weigh/measure.
We talk about and taste the food and use lots of language and numeracy skills in the process. When the dishes are prepared, we cook/refrigerate them whilst the children move on to a linked activity, such as crafts, stories, songs or games. We then return to the cooking table to sample our delicious dishes!
Any leftover food can then be taken home (please provide a suitable container) and your child will also take home a recipe card so they can recreate the dish at home.
