Delicious dips and dippers

This activity aims to help children to recognise fruit and vegetables as a healthy snack in a balanced diet, perform simple food skills safely with a focus on cutting and mixing and to present food in an attractive way. This session contains a lesson plan, an advice sheet to support setting up cooking with your class, as well as a game and a letter and activity to send home to parents in order to continue the learning outside of the classroom. Although this resource is designed for use in EYFS, covering many areas of Development Matters, such as Physical Development, Listening and Attention and Playing and Exploring, it could easily be adapted to work across the primary phase.

This education programme is managed by the British Nutrition Foundation in partnership with the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).
