BBytes Menu

Bygrove Primary School

Made a 20 page recipe booklet, 10 Easy and Healthy Recipes. Eight children from Years 3-6 and parents learnt to prepare and cook healthy recipes chosen by Sherin, Reception Teacher and Nursery Nurse. The choice of recipes was based on Sherin’s experience of working with parents and knowledge of local need. Parents also chose one recipe and another was personalised by the children.  

The sessions were held in the Family Room where parents and staff often dropped in, sharing the delicious dishes the children had made and helping spread the word on healthy eating. The kitchen staff were also invited to visit and include one of the recipes in the school menu.

Children recorded recipes with drawings, photos, and writing, designed icons on the computer using Inkscape and collected healthy tips for their recipe booklet.  They were ambassadors for Banana Bytes, sharing their knowledge with their classmates and parents in class and assembly. Their booklet was designed and laid out by Charlotte at DK Books and then tested in school with parents for its appeal and clarity of recipes & information.  
1,000 copies were printed and distributed to all families in school and then to the local community through Newby Health Centre and Idea Stores Chrisp Street and Bow. The children presented 500 copies to Chrisp Street Health Centre.
