Scooterearz Logo

Well, they are fruit and vegetable based, focusing on seasonal ingredients) and offer two recipes every month. The packs include all the dry ingredients and come with a clear tick-box shopping list for each recipe so you and your child can go shopping together, helping children to make the right choices - or maybe you can use some fruit and vegetables already at home thus reducing waste. On the back of the shopping list there is space for notes. Your child will also learn to weigh out the ingredients rather than having them pre-packaged. The recipes are not restricted to GF foods, include an activity pack and the illustrated child-led step-by-step cards are different to all other similar companies on the market...Read on.
