Pack Your Tasty and Healthy Lunch Camp (5-10 years old)
Let’s learn new skills in the kitchen, practice old skills and have loads of fun while learning about nutrition and how to keep our bodies healthy and happy.
- Let’s learn how to pack your own tasty and healthy lunch so you get a few steps closer to becoming independent in the kitchen. Your mom will love it!
- Let’s try new foods and let’s be a bit less picky today than we were yesterday.
- Let’s find foods you have never tried before, but that will become your new favourites.
What we do during the camp:
- Make healthy and yummy recipes (NO white stuff – sugar, bread, rice, pasta; NO processed ingredients; ONLY wholesome ingredients)
- Learn easy and practical steps needed to make a lunch that is not only nutritious, but also delicious. Your mom will be so proud of you!
- Practice old kitchen skills and learn new ones (the children will be allowed to use knives)
- Share the food we made with each other
- Read a book on healthy eating and talk about nutrition
- Outdoor fun break
- Try an unfamiliar food and talk about it
- Make a fun craft
- Take leftovers, recipes, info sheets and worksheets home
