Yesterday afternoon we saw some very excited and talented kids come together to practice their cooking skills and learn more about the food they eat. These wee stars put a lot of effort into weighing, mixing, chopping (and sneaking tastes of) a list of ingredients! Getting messy was well worth it though because we ended up with delicious raspberry cakes which went down a treat … we just hope the little chefs managed not to eat them all on the way home so people at home can taste how yummy they are.
While the cakes were baking we had a bit of time tasting and learning about different types of berries including blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries with some mixed reactions! Did you know that the strawberry is the only fruit that’s seeds grow on the outside of it?, or that different shades of blueberries have different tastes?
We also did a fun activity organising different fruits and vegetables into the seasons that they grow in, a task the kids loved and showed a growing knowledge on eating in a way which helps us protect our planet. Great job guys, see you all next week
