Cooking and Nutrition

Cooking and Nutrition: KS1 and KS2 DT lesson planning, ready to teach.

Cooking and Nutrition lesson planning packs, with slides and printable resources for teaching children how to prepare and cook affordable, healthy, tasty meals for themselves.

Learning how to prepare a range of healthy and nutritious meals is a vital life skill for young learners to develop. That's why we've made a broad range of cookery projects for Key Stages 1 and 2, packed with loads of tasty and varied recipes for children to test, improve or take inspiration from. Planning packs include advice for children and teachers about working safely and hygenically with a range of kitchen equipment and ingredients, and there are plenty of opportunities for children to devise their own tasty dishes, too!
