Our Let’s Get Cooking Programme is a progressive skills based scheme of work that teaches age appropriate skills and recipes through Key Stage 1 and 2.

Our recipes are designed around the Eatwell Guide and the five different food groups – carbohydrates, dairy, fats, protein and vegetables – and are nutritionally balanced.  We are conscious that in today’s modern living, there are food intolerances and allergies, as well as children who are vegan or vegetarian, and from different cultures such as Portuguese and Polish, and we have tried to make it fun, enjoyable and accessible for everyone.
