Food for life
Food for Life is the programme about making good food the easy choice for everyone – making healthy, tasty and sustainable meals the norm for all to enjoy, reconnecting people with where their food comes from, teaching them how it’s grown and cooked, and championing the importance of well-sourced ingredients.
We have ‘A Food for Life Early Years Award’. The award is a great way to demonstrate that our nursery is giving every child in our care the best possible start to their food journey. We promote healthy eating and incorporate it into our curriculum.
We have asked our parents to contribute their favorite recipes so that we can collate them together and make a Warwick Nursery Recipe book.
Below are some of the delicious recipes we have received:
Fish Pie (makes enough for 2 adults and 2 children)
Mixed fish (pre-pack about 350g)
White Sauce - I cheat – heat milk on the hob and when it’s warm, add 2 teaspoons of cornflower that is already dissolved in cold water. Add salt and pepper and dried tarragon and allow to simmer (to thicken and cook out the flour)
Take off the hob and add a generous amount of grated cheddar.
Mix together with the fish and top with mash.
Bake in oven (180 degrees C) for about 20-25 minutes.
Serve with vegetables of your choice – usually carrots, broccoli and peas in our house!
Cheesy beans and bacon quesadillas
900g Apples (peeled/cored/sliced)
1tsp Ground Cinnamon
225g Plain Flour
Heat the oven to 200 degrees C / 400 degrees F/ Gas Mark 6
Place apple slices, sugar cinnamon into a large oven proof dish
Scatter the crumble mix (once all rubbed together) over the apple mixture
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden.
