Delicious Dips and Dippers

The British Nutrition Foundation has unveiled a new scheme of work for Design and Technology - Food.  The scheme was designed with Year 2 in mind but is flexible and can be easily adapted for different age groups. 

As many people will be aware, there are currently four QCA Schemes for Design and Technology - food, for children in Years 1, 3 and 5.  The new scheme, Delicious Dips and Dippers, is designed to complement those currently in existence, promote healthy eating and provide new ideas for food work in primary school.

Delicious Dips and Dippers, offers opportunities for children to explore multicultural foods, taste dips and dippers, learn about healthy eating and design and make their own dips and dippers. The scheme is supported with lots of great resources including, worksheets, recipes, PowerPoint presentations and interactive whiteboard files, e.g. SMART board activities.

Delicious Dips and Dippers is available to download free from
