Through games, play, song and dance, as well as growing, cooking and eating, children are invited to explore and delight in the fascinating world of food. This joyful and creative resource has been developed collaboratively in Liverpool by arts and health organisation Squash Nutrition, Sportslinx and Liverpool Early Years Foundation Stage Team.

Yum, Yum, Yummy offers Early Years practitioners an abundance of creative ideas, suggestions and top tips from simple recipes to ‘take it home’ activities. Following a seasonal journey around the food year it celebrates and engages children in the British growing season and focuses on foods from around the world.

· Try ‘Orange Squashing’ – how many oranges do you need to squish to fill your cup
· Sing the apple song and then munch and crunch on your favourite Autumnal snack
· Dance yourself from seed to sunflower
· Imagine a perfect picnic and pack your hamper!

The aim of the pack is to provide the inspiration, information and tools to make healthy food an active part of Early Years provision. The activities provide opportunities to develop enabling skills including social, practical, creative, linguistic, numerical and scientific. There are practitioner-led sessions, child-initiated activities, ideas for food-focussed trips and ideas to send home for the family to try.
