At Fun Little Foodies, our main goal is to get kids involved and interested in food and cooking. We focus on having fun, getting stuck in, tasting new food and flavours and exploring where our food comes from. Our recipes are nutritious and show the importance and simplicity of using fresh ingredients wherever possible. A balanced diet is always emphasised and therefore some recipes do also cater for the sweet lovers amongst our children!
Children are encouraged to be as independent as possible and practice their listening and following instructions skills. However, due to the age of our children in our preschool classes, parent/carer participation is expected when needed.
We run weekly preschool classes in North Tyneside, Newcastle and Northumberland as well as after school classes and holiday sessions for older children. We also do pop up sessions in a variety of locations around the North East of England – follow us on facebook for more details.
We are available to run cookery sessions in schools and nurseries and for birthday parties.

Jensen is a lot more confident now and loves the routines of the class. He also has tried lots of new foods in the tastings which is great. We’re going to sign… Continue reading My little boy loves Foodies!
