Asda Mini Chefs supporting cooking on the primary curriculum

Asda Mini Chefs is a set of recipes and teaching resources developed by Asda’s Community Life programme to support cooking on the primary curriculum and also encourage parents to cook at home with their children.  

The materials have been designed to support the curriculum for food education in primary schools in all four nations and the recently launched core food competencies from the BNF.  They cover: cooking skills; knowledge of key food groups (farm to fork); nutrition and healthy eating linked to the government’s eatwell plate.

10 simple meal-based recipes (online and downloadable step-by-step pdf), suitable for cooking in a school with limited facilities
