Get Cooking in the Classroom: Recipes to Promote Healthy Cooking and Nutrition in Primary Schools

Get Cooking in the Primary Classroom provides a step-by-step approach to teaching children to cook. Pupils will develop skills in food handling and an understanding of the part food plays in the world around us.

An ideal starting point to achieve the ‘levelling up’ in living healthily the Government are aiming for.

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!

All primary school children in England must learn to cook in the curriculum and be taught about nutrition and healthy eating in order to comply with the School Food Plan.

To quote the Government ‘Levelling Up’ white paper: “Too many young people are still leaving education without the skills and knowledge to cook and live healthily.”

The good news is that the UK Government will invest up to £5m to launch a school cooking revolution with the aim for every child leaving school to know at least six basic recipes that will support healthy living into adulthood.

We are pleased to have resources to help schools show pupils some simple, healthy recipes and so foster a love of cooking.

Each of the 15 recipes in Get Cooking in the Primary Classroom 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.
