Learning Resources Giveaway

I enjoy teaming up with Learning Resources there are always so many lovely items to review on their site.  On this occasion we were sent the New Sprouts Healthy Dinner Play Food Set, I was very impressed with the quality!  Hands down its much better than the rest of the play food they own, the soft touch plastic is much more interesting to play with than the very fake alternatives they have already.


I like that it comes complete with a basket for the price (£20.34), it means you can also play shopping.  Taking your basket and filling it up with groceries first before returning home to cook dinner means more possibilities for imaginative play.  The fact it is filled with healthy dinner items is great too; it’s an ideal way to discuss what foods are good to eat and the most nourishing meals.  Hopefully then you can steer your children to the healthiest options at dinner and get them to cut back on all the sweets and chocolate!  Starting at a young age they might be more receptive to those valuable lessons about nutrition.


Youngest enjoyed making up a salad in the bowl, hopefully from now on he will be more enthusiastic for real salad leaves!  Perhaps I should get him to use his newfound food preparation skills in our real kitchen.  The set is aimed at children 2 – 6 years old; I think it’s a quality product so very safe in the hands of those aged 2+, no small pieces for them to swallow.

The New Sprouts range is very extensive so you can top up their play food collection with healthy lunch, snacks and breakfast.  All the while developing the theme of the importance of good diet and having a mixture of the desired food groups and making sure they do not have too much salt, sugar or fat.

If you would like to win your own Healthy Dinner set then please fill out the form below by the 28th of December.
