The Playhouse children make their own pizzas

Date: 09 Nov 2017

Children at The Playhouse Day Nursery in Swindon have been busy making their own pizzas as part of the organisation’s Creative Cooks enhancement.

The children added cheese, tomato puree, fresh tomatoes, peppers and sweetcorn, according to their own taste, to a pita bread base in constructing their pizzas. They were then able to eat them at tea time.

“The children really enjoyed making their pizzas as they could choose what they wanted to put on, which encourages independence and choice,” said Nursery Manager Claire Hatherall. “They explored the taste and texture after the pizzas had been cooked.”

Bright Horizons’ Creative Cooks enhancement aims to encourage creativity in cooking.
