Design and Technology

Remarkable Recipes

In this design and technology project, children learn more about the origins of foods first explored in the Y1 project 'Chop, Slice and Mash'. They learn about the parts of the plants we eat and the variety of foods that come from animal sources. They explore tools used for food preparation and decide which tool is best for a specific task. Children discover why some foods are cooked and learn to read a simple recipe. They choose a new, healthy school lunch recipe that fits a set of criteria. They make, taste and evaluate their chosen recipe and decide if the dish should be included on the school menu.
