Burnley Children have a Soup-er Time in the Kitchen


Little chefs aged five and under had a soup-er time cooking at home with their families, after their nursery provided them with the right ingredients.

Staff at Little People Private Day Nursery in Burnley sent their children home with recipe bags containing fresh ingredients and instructions for making a healthy and delicious soup.

The bags contained an orange, carrots, onions, lentils, stock and garlic; all of the ingredients needed to make a tasty carrot and lentil soup from Little People’s healthy seasonal menu.

The nursery’s families prepared and ate the soup together at home, before sharing photos of themselves cooking up a storm with the hashtag #soupselfie.

Little People Nursery Manager Emma Spencer said: “We do a lot to promote healthy eating at the nursery, from preparing all of our healthy meals in the nursery kitchen, to teaching the children how to prepare and serve their own food.

“Cooking with children is a great way to help them understand where healthy meals come from. When children are involved in transforming fresh vegetables into something really tasty, it helps them to make healthy choices now and in the future.

“We wanted to make it as easy as possible for our busy families to cook a healthy meal at home, and we thought the bags would be a fun way to do that. We were delighted with how many of our families took part and would like to thank them all for sharing lovely photos of the children cooking up a storm.”

The carrot and lentil soup is just one of the nutritionally balanced meals from Little Peoples’ varied seasonal menu, which was awarded the Bronze Catering Mark from the Soil Association in recognition of its use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
