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

Ingredients

  • 4 rashers of bacon (smoked or unsmoked and cut into strips) optional
  • 400g beans (baked, haricot or mixed)
  • 100g sweetcorn, drained
  • cheddar cheese (as much as you'd like to add), grated
  • 4 tortillas (flour or corn)

Method

  1. Fry the bacon until cooked and then mix in a bowl with the beans, cheese and sweetcorn.
  2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan big enough for your tortilla.
  3. Place one tortilla on the bottom of the pan, even out half your mixture onto the tortilla being careful not to go too far to the edge as they could seep out.
  4. Place the other tortilla on top and heat through for 1-2 mins, then flip over to cook the other side.
  5. Cut into quarters to serve.
  6. Beware contents will be very hot and very messy but kids will love them!
