Toddler Kiddy Cook

Toddler Kiddy Cook

On Thursday 6 July 2017

Summer’s nearly here and what better way to get your toddler interested in fabulously fresh food than a trip to Tatton Park's walled garden, to pick your own ingredients for a delicious seasonal recipe? Picking your own fruit and vegetables is the best way to get the freshest and most delicious foods from field to fork and children get to see first hand how they are produced. Tatton Park has been working with Kiddy Cook for a number of years now, offering sessions for slightly older children. Due to popular demand, we have now created a 90 minute session for toddlers and parents/carers to 'pick and cook' together. Recommended for children aged between 2 and 6 years old. This event must be pre-booked. Please contact Nikki Geddes at hale@kidd
