This term we are making the connection between farm animals and the food that we get from them. Below are some recipes using milk, cheese and eggs.
It is a great opportunity for children to learn about where these things come from. We will watch some short videos to find out where they come from - we don't need to watch the whole video, just enough to get an idea.
It is also a good opportunity to introduce unfamiliar foods and let them explore - they can touch, taste and smell the different ingredients as they are adding them.
Use the visual above to help your child to complete each step of the recipe.

This recipe has a few more steps than the chocolate pancakes, but it's great for practising spreading with a knife. If you don't have a rolling pin, you can just squash the bread with your hands or use a clean glass bottle with straight sides. You can also skip the grating step by using pre-grated cheddar cheese.
It's also a good place to learn about some of the foods we make out of milk and eggs - cheese is made out of cow's milk and mayonnaise is made using hen's eggs!
