KS1-Cooking and nutrition

This list supports the Design, Make and Evaluate process which is integral to D&T through the topic area of food preparation and cooking. The activities support learning about cooking and nutrition  with 5- 7 year-olds. There are lots of ideas for developing skills used in D&T through focussed practical tasks, so children are able to apply these techniques to their preparation of different dishes. The resources provide opportunities to explore the principles of a healthy and balanced diet and allow children to find out more about the food that they eat and where it comes from. There are a range of authentic contexts for children to design, make and evaluate their own dishes and make any changes  to improve them. In particular for the people that they have designed them for.
