At Daffodils we promote healthy eating and believe it is important that children have a broad knowledge of where food comes from and how it is used by our bodies. Involving them in the preparation of snacks at nursery is great for developing a range of skills, whilst also encouraging them to try new foods! Our fire circles teach the children to follow boundaries and keep safe They learn about elements required to make a fire and help to build them. As the children chop and mix ingredients, they learn about textures, smells, sounds and are able to watch first-hand as change happens when their food cooks. Often the children help read and write different ingredients used, there are so many learning opportunities that cooking together brings!
