Young Foodies’ Tasty Learning Treat

Children at Upton Juniors are exploring healthy and nutritious food as part of their How My Body Works topic.

The Year 3 group’s latest task was to create a healthy and tasty side dish to complement a main meal.

On the menu was coleslaw and pupils discussed what makes it such a healthy option and what they could serve it with to create a balanced meal, for example with a jacket potato with cheese.

To support their work in Design and Technology they learned how to safely and sensibly use knives, peelers and graters in the kitchen to create their coleslaw dish. This was followed up by the pupils composing a cross-curricular piece of writing, detailing the recipe and preparation method for their side dish.

Head of Year 3 Katie Vary explained: “Events like this are always so exciting and memorable for the children. They were thrilled to demonstrate their preparation knowledge using various utensils, create the perfect coleslaw dressing and taste the finished product.

“The activity supported our work on the human body, exploring healthy and balanced food options.”

* Coleslaw, also known as cole slaw, or simply as slaw, is a side dish consisting primarily of finely shredded raw cabbage with a salad dressing or condiment, commonly either vinaigrette or mayonnaise. This dish originated in the Netherlands in the 18th century.
