Healthy Plate Of Food Game

A game which allows you to choose foods and drag and drop them onto a plate to see what sort of meal you'd make.




This one is particularly good because it gives you an analysis on the right hand side of how balanced your meal is in terms of different food groups and the nutritients you're looking to take it.

Also if you double click on any food, a little card pops up with more sophisticated information about the nutritional profile of the food, so you can choose to make the learning more in depth if you wish.

There is a very broad range of foods to choose from, although it is an American site so many of the foods are more geared to the US, nevertheless most foods you would want to choose are on there.

A really well thought out version of this activity. Play it here.

Easter Chick Boiled Eggs This is a lovely idea originally from the Manga Cookbook, but we saw in on JustJENN's recipe site, where she tried it out with her own children.

Kids eat so much sweet food over Easter, you need to make sure they are getting a little protein in to stop their blood sugar constantly rocketing up and down. So if you're having an Easter themed meal, you could put some of these in the mix. If you'...

Frozen Grape Lollies (Popsicles) We found this cool and simple idea on the lovely Make and Takes website. It's incredibly simple - basically a grape fruit kebab - but by freezing it, you make a sweet treat which can replace an iced lolly. The site uses detailed photo instructions on what to do, showing the children making their own popsicles so your children can look at the article and do this themselves without much adult help. You can find the recipe h...
