  • Recipe Method

    Child: spread your chosen topping onto the rice cake

    Parent and child: carefully cut out the owl's wings from the apple or

    peach. If using peach for the wings, consider removing the stone to make

    it easier for children cut

    Parent and child: cut out little triangles of apple or peach to form the

    owl's feet

    Child: chop two slices of banana to form the owl's eyes

    Child: place two blueberries onto each slice of banana

    Child: take six of the multigrain hoops and place on the owl's tummy

    Serve and enjoy!  








    Opportunities for Learning

    Develop cooking skills: scooping, spreading, chopping

    Learning: ask children questions, such as:

    Top tip: consider the texture of food that children can manage. If using

    firmer fruits, such as apple, you may need to lightly cook them before serving

    to children. Alternatively, choose softer fruits that do not require cooking.

    which pieces of fruit are the biggest?

    how many multigrain hoops can you count?

    can you measure out a teaspoon of topping?

    what colour are the berries?

    what does the peach skin feel like?
