Need some ideas to keep energetic toddlers busy over the Summer holidays? Here are some fun-filled activities that will teach little ones about the food they’re eating, and keep them entertained for an hour or two!

Make a weekly bake

Our Little Dish Family Cookbook is packed with yummy recipes with plenty of jobs for little helpers. Some of our favourites include Grandma’s lemon cake, our Gluten free carrot cake and Flourless mini chocolate cakes. Don’t forget to tag #littledish in your creations.

Colouring fun with the Zoo Crew

Grab some crayons and download our free printable colouring sheets.  Help Mabel the Cow learn to cook and Max the Monkey and Crawford the Croc find their favourite veggies.

Visit a pick-your-own farm

What better way to learn about fruit and veg than taking your little explorer to a pick-your-own farm. From sweet strawberries to crunchy cucumbers, discover how they grow, how to pick them and then try them for tea. Find your nearest pick-your-own farm by visiting

Open a smoothie café

This is a great activity for after you visit the pick-your-own farm, or if you have lots of yummy fruit that needs eating. Little ones can create a colourful smoothie menu and then help make Sunshine orange smoothie, Purple smoothie, Green smoothie or Red smoothie – all bursting with goodness.

Have a teddy bears’ picnic

A classic activity that never gets old. Grab your little one’s favourite cuddly toys, a rug and a plate of our nutritious Finger Foods and head outside for a lovely playtime picnic.

Pizza-making playdate

Our Easy Pitta Pizza recipe is great fun for a playdate activity. Little chefs can spread on the tomato puree, choose their favourite toppings and have lots of fun sprinkling. Don’t forget the chef hats! 

We hope you and your little one have lots of foodie fun over the Summer hols!
