Last Wednesday afternoon Year 5 were cooking up a storm! As part of our Design and Technology lessons we have been investigating how we can alter recipes to make them more healthy in a variety of ways without compromising the taste too much!
We looked at our favourite junk foods and the children have been designing and re- designing their own take on these junk foods . The children independently altered the recipes and in teams organised themselves to bring in the right ingredients and recipe to make it work!
Last Wednesday they got to try out these modified recipes and I am extremely proud of how successful they were; not only in making their designs but also in working together! We had three teams – one making whole wheat doughnuts with fruit topping, one making reduced fat and sugar cupcakes and one team making delicious dairy free and fruity milkshakes. All three recipes got the thumbs up, well done year 5!
