Pre-School Cookery

At Pudding Pie, we want you to help us educate children to cook using healthy and nutritious ingredients and to give them a wider knowledge of the variety and abundance of fresh produce available to us all.

When children are at Pre-School age, they have not developed  pre-conceived ideas or dislikes of vegetables. We aim to give them a chance to touch, smell and taste foods, giving them a better understanding and also allowing them to realise that eating healthily can be fun and tasty too!

‘Teaching skills that will last a lifetime’

All our Pre-School Classes, offer hands on tuition, with group and individual exercises, making and tasting healthy dishes. We are not saying we can turn all children into carrot crunching, spinach munching miracles, but we can allow them the opportunity to discover even at a young age, the benefits of eating healthy foods.

Our Lessons include:

Circle Time

Children have the chance to familiarise themselves with the produce of the week.

This can be through handling, smelling, discussing colour, shape, texture and where/how it grows.

We will normally play a game to assist children with familiarity of produce for that week.

Table Time

Children have the opportunity to sample, taste and enjoy the produce of the week.

Through our unique skills and techniques you may just be surprised how children respond to these fruit and vegetables.

This gives children the chance to really sample new things is a way that is not always possible at meal times or at home.

Games/activities

A great fun part of the class where we will play games or activities, normally linked with the fruit and vegetables of the week. We may even have a story.

We have found this helps to give children that extra positive association with the produce and more familiarity that will help them to try new things and be more willing to continue with what they have done  at home.
