Recipes to Promote Healthy Cooking and Nutrition in Primary Schools
in stock
£ 19.99


All primary school children in England must learn to cook in the curriculum and be taught about nutrition and healthy eating.

Get Cooking in the Primary Classroom has been designed to support schools as they work to comply with The School Food Plan.

With relative ease, teachers will be able to undertake a variety of healthy and fun food activities. Many of the recipes do not even require access to an oven!

The book provides a step-by-step approach, developing skills in food handling and understanding of the part food plays in the world around us, along with a range of cross-curricular links.

Each of the 15 recipes is made as an individual mixture so children make and see their own achievements. The results are designed to go home with the child to share and demonstrate their new skills to siblings, parents, relations and friends. This can provide an excellent opportunity for celebrating achievement and lead to discussion about new foods and flavours at home.

The teacherʼs notes also offer suggestions of both how to increase the skill demand of the recipe and how to make it easier, meaning that you can use the recipes through the whole age range of the school.

The authors, Sally Brown and Kate Morris, are passionate about getting children cooking. They would love to come and give you tips on how to comply with The School Food Plan and the 2014 National Curriculum for cooking. Why not book them for your next INSET day? Get in touch here.
