The Little Foodies Club for Childminders - Standard Pack

The Little Foodies Club was developed to help you deliver activities and games throughout the year, to accompany the seasonal stories.

The Standard Pack contains some extras for the children in your care to make the activities a bit more personal. Each month the children in your care can:

- read the story of the month with you
- find out what foods are yummy this month
- carry out some little tasks in the veggie patch or help garden wildlife
- colour in a mini poster of the main veggie character this month
- complete a puzzle or game featuring the book's characters
- carry out a craft or investigation activity linked to the theme of the story

The pack includes five sets of these resources, so up to five children can have their own copies of the activities without the need for you to do any last minute photocopying. If you have six or more children you can also buy individual top up sets of these resource packs - called Additional Resource Pack.

In addition each of the five children will receive a Children's Pack - this includes their own certificate for taking part, a metal pin badge, and a passport. The passport leads them through the whole year, trying out new foods and new activities. If they complete all the items in the passport and send it back to us, we will send them a free gift as a reward.

If you have more than five children in your care and want to buy additional Children's Packs or Resource Sets, or if you want to run the scheme for more than one year and want to renew your resources you can purchase them separately. So you won't need to keep buying the books and guide every year. These add-on packs are only available to people who have bought a Little Foodies Club membership.

I'm a childminder and the children I work with love the books and the things we have tried from The Foodies website. I have a very fussy 10 year old who attends but I challenged her at the start of the year to try something new each month and she is doing really well. She has discovered ''new'' foods and is now prepared to try almost anything. Her 4 year old brother now shows signs of being less fussy too. A great result all round - thank you for the idea.

What do you get with this Little Foodies Club Package?
- One box set of all 12 Foodies Books
- Five each of the 60 different resources (5 per month) for sharing with up to five children
- Five certificates for kids
- Five badges
- Five passports
- a guide on making the most of your resources and books
- a certificate for you to put in your portfolio to show you are delivering this programme

What's the difference between this package and the basic package?
This package is more expensive than the Basic Pack, but includes five printed sets of the resources to save your time copying, and it also includes passports, badges and certificates for the children. You can also buy additional kids packs. That pack is better if you have a small group pf regular children who will take part all year and you want to provide them with a more complete pack each.
The Basic Pack includes one set of the resources, for you to copy as you wish. This is better and saves you money if you have fluctuating numbers of children taking part, and you're prepared to do your photocopying as needed. It doesn't include any badges, passports or certificates for children though.

You can of course add these activities to the free resources on this website to tie the books and games in with tasting, sequencing and modelling activities each month.
