Learning Opportunities: Food and Cooking Cover

Food and cooking provide a variety of opportunities and experiences for children to explore the properties of food for investigation from a scientific perspective, as well as a chance to introduce the idea of the need to eat and the importance of healthy eating. This will also help children to understand the origins of food, that it doesn’t just come from the supermarket, a fact that can be supported with the idea of ‘growing your own’ in the setting garden or with visits to a pick-your-own farm or local community garden.

This book provides a store of practical ideas focusing on food and cooking, enabling educators to plan ahead with confidence.
