Cooking Nutrition

Getting the kids involved with the cooking is a great way of teaching them about nutrition, how to make healthier choices and it also encourages them to try a new dish – especially if they’ve made it themselves.

Potatoes are perfect for making delicious and nutritious meals, whether they’re baked, mashed or roasted, we have a recipe to suit everyone’s taste buds. We think it’s important to introduce cooking to kids in a fun and engaging way, so we have a variety of homemade recipes and activities that are guaranteed to get them excited.

Potato crafts for kids  

If you have a couple of spuds left over or some extra that need using up, why not dedicate them to some arts and crafts for the kids. Our Spud Squad have a variety of craft activities to keep the kids active and inspire their creativity.  

  • Make your very own Mr Potato Head by decorating a potato with googly eyes, ice lolly sticks, yoghurt pots and fuzzy felts 
  • Create these potato stamps by cutting the spud in half and pressing a cookie cutter into its flesh - it makes painting much more fun  
  • Design your own superhero mask and become the newest member of the Spud Squad
