Get Kids Cooking!

September 9, 2019


Get Kids Cooking for a healthier future!

Fast food is becoming readily available to young people across the whole of the UK. Whether it’s the many varieties of chicken shop on the high street or the multitude of takeaways available with just a quick tap on a phone, the health and well-being of youngsters is something we must address to ensure a healthy future.

The objective of ‘Get Kids Cooking’ is to empower kids and teens to become more actively involved in the planning, preparation, and cooking of meals.  Not only is it actively fighting the battle against the many serious health and social issues related to youth’s eating habits in today’s time, it’s also an extremely fun activity for the whole family to enjoy!

Here are some child friendly recipe ideas sure to turn your kids into little chefs! (Adult supervision and assistance is required for the younger bakers and chefs in the house!)

Thumbprint Biscuits!

Make a simple biscuit mix using butter, caster sugar, egg yolk and plain flower. Once made into biscuit shapes, get your little chefs to make a thumbprint in each biscuit and fill with their favourite St. Dalfour Preserve! We recommend our delicious Strawberry Preserve! Once you’ve added our delicious preserve, bake in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes. (Get an adult to help you with this bit!)

Cherry Burgers!

In a large bowl, combine lean beef mince, 1 egg, one diced onion and 4 tbsp of St. Dalfour Black Cherry Preserve. Break the mix into palm-sized patties. Fry on a medium heat for 5 minutes on each side or until slightly charred. (Adult supervision and assistance is required for this bit!) Once cooked, serve in wholemeal buns with a little bit of mayo, lettuce and tomato.

Fruity Flapjacks!

Combine butter, soft brown sugar, St. Dalfour Classic Honey, porridge oats and a St. Dalfour Preserve of your choice. Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool, cut into portions and enjoy!
