Grow > Cook > Eat is our FREE outdoor learning programme for children aged 8-11. Children are taken on a playful and inventive journey to discover food – how to grow it, how to cook some of it and how food affects their bodies. The aim is to give children the knowledge that they need that will last for their lifetime.
The next programme is in the summer holidays for 4 Mondays in a row: 31st July, 7th, 14th and 21st August
The activities take place between 10am and 5pm and the children should attend for the whole of the programme as children learn progressively.
The programme takes place in the garden with food growing all around the children. So they see vegetables in a different light. They may not even recognise familiar vegetables growing in the ground and new vegetables will be an exciting all round encounter. Children are encouraged to taste new vegetables and have a Bravery Passport to record this encourages the national standards of 5-7 portions a day. They design rainbows on their plates, play food games and are directly involved in the lunchtime experience creating their eating environment as well as their lunch as a community. Many parents have told us that their children are now much more keen on eating vegetables at home!
If parents have childcare issues then children can be dropped off before 9am and must be picked up no later than 6pm – by arrangement only. Pick-ups from the Harold Hill area can also be arranged.
