Kiddy Cook adapts courses to support home-schooling parents
While Kiddy Cook may not be able to deliver their cooking activity workshops in schools currently, it hasn't stopped them putting together a range of activities and resources to help parents (and teachers) with home-learning in line with their core principles - Eat Well! Be Active! Feel Happy!
Over the coming weeks, their YouTube channel will feature a range of videos covering:
- Cook-at-home recipes
- Fitness challenges
- Mindfulness and wellbeing advice
- Kitchen science experiments
They have also developed a series of curriculum-based education packs building on their Food Foundation programme which they usually deliver to thousands of children in hundreds of schools.
Sugar shocker activity pack
Children will learn about the amount of sugar in common food and drinks in order to make healthier choices when it comes to snacking. The pack will also include some easy recipes for kids to prepare (with a little help from an adult) together with some handy hints and helpful tips about eating food that makes you feel good.
A taste of maths activity pack
Primary-age children will use food as a basis of exploring basic calculations, ratios, proportions and estimating. Based on the sessions usually run in schools, activities have been revised so an adult can work through them with a child at home. The pack will also include recipe cards and healthy eating advice to help kids make better food choices.
A five-week programme of at-home cooking lessons to share with your child. Given the shortage of certain foods in shops, each recipe will create a basic meal using ingredients that can be chopped and changed depending on availability.
