The best way to teach kids to waste less food? Help them learn to love food. Help them to value food. Cook with them. Get them to try different foods. Here James is making ravioli stuffed with Swiss chard, onions, courgette @merchantgourmet beluga lentils and egg. Make big ones, 1 per person, don't trim them and it's a practical meal, pulled together with some pasta, delicious lentils and leftover bits and bobs.
If you don’t have a lot of time, cooking is the best way to combine play and practicality as you can play with, talk to and teach your kids then have your dinner ready at the end of it. It might take a little longer, but only a little, and it’s time you get together so each minute is it's own reward.
Agar-Agar Fruit Jelly (⭐️Kid’s favorite summer food )...
👩🍳 Gelatin has a lot of chemicals ☠️ and commercial brands add too much sugar. The perfect substitute for this kid’s favorite treat is Agar -Agar. But what is it? Agar is a colorless, flavorless seaweed ingredient. You will dissolve the agar flakes into hot water – the same as jello. You can create a great variety of “gelatin-like” recipes. The possibilities are endless! Enjoy the rest of the summer 🏖...

Annabel Karmel's Bagel Snake Recipe
With the school holidays approaching, here's a great recipe for young cooks.
For the tuna salad topping:
1 x 200g can of tuna in oil (drained)
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp crème fraiche or Greek yoghurt
2 spring onions, finely sliced
For the egg salad topping:
2 to 3 large hard boiled Bird Bros eggs (8 minutes)
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp snipped fresh chives
3 tbsp salad cress
salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the decoration:
cherry tomatoes, halved
1 stuffed olive, sliced
strip of sweet pepper
1. Slice the bagels in half and then cut each half down the centre to form a semi circle. Cut out the head of the snake from one of the pieces of bagel and the tail from another. Mix the ingredients for the tuna salad topping and mix the ingredients for the egg salad topping. Spread half the bagels with tuna and half with egg.
2. Decorate the tuna topping with halved cherry tomatoes and the egg topping with strips of chives arranged in a criss cross pattern. Arrange the bagels to form the body of a snake. Then attach the head to the snake’s body and arrange two slices of stuffed olive to form the eyes and cut out a forked tongue from the strip of sweet pepper.
