Smiles 4 Miles - Master Chef Day at Kids on Mullum
The children at ‘Kids on Mullum Early Learning Service’ in Ringwood hosted a “Master Chef Day” in June, and is one of the many long day care centres participating in the Smiles 4 Miles program through EACH. “Master Chef Day” ties in with the Eat Well Message of the Smiles 4 Miles program, promoting nutritious food and eating habits that contribute to healthy growth and development in children.
The children had an amazing experience, exploring different recipes for Master Chef Day.
The Toddler One-room made Sultana Scones and the children measured, poured, and mixed the ingredients together and enjoyed their yummy scones for afternoon tea.
In the Toddler Two-room, they made healthy fruit smoothies. Each child had the opportunity to choose which fruit they would like in their smoothies, while also discussing the health benefits of each fruit.
Junior Kinder made delicious pizza muffins for Lunch. The children enjoyed creating their own pizzas, with the ability to use the ingredients they wanted on their muffins.
The Kinder room explored one of their educator’s homeland food, roti. The children discussed the ingredients used to create the roti, which was wheat flour and water. The children enjoyed using the belan (rolling pin) to roll out their dough on the chakla (wooden board), which was then placed into the electric pan to cook.
