Healthy Snacks & Let's Bake Combo
Two healthy cookbooks - just £25 for NDNA Nursery Members (non-members £35)
Book One: Healthy Snacks, Happy Children
Afternoon snack time in early years settings can sometimes be tricky. We want to give our children a little healthy snack to keep them going until home time. But, we don't want to give them too much and put them off their teas with their families!
The recipes in this guide have been submitted by early years settings and NDNA team members as afternoon snacks. They are tried and tested favourites with the children. Some require cooking facilities, others not as much. It also includes a selection of recipes suitable for children with special dietary requirements. These recipes could alternatively be used as light lunch options if you so wish.
Book Two: Let’s Bake and Create
Getting children to take part in cooking is a great way to help them learn and develop. Our recipe book contains great meals and snacks, but most importantly it gives you ideas of how children can learn by being involved in the cooking process. Each flavour-full recipe tells you what the learning outcomes will be, whether it's from counting the biscuits or weighing the flour!
The recipes from this book have been submitted by our members and NDNA staff. All have been tried and tested by our biggest food critics - the children in our care! The cookbook provides a wide range of healthy options, from main meals to desserts and snacks. Favourite dishes from all corners of the globe are included.
