This activity aims to help children understand the range of foods eaten in other cultures and communities, to try new foods and to perform simple food skills safely such as spreading, cutting with scissors, tearing and grating to make their own pizza. This session contains a lesson plan, an advice sheet to support setting up cooking with your class, as well as a build a pizza game and a letter with 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, it could be easily 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).
