Food is Fun sponsored by Langage Farm
Children of all ages can get hands on with food as local chefs show them that ‘Food is Fun’.
Bread, scones, fish fingers, sushi and pasta are just some of the dishes that chefs will help children make and transform into meals during the festival.
Encouraging people to explore food in a fun and interactive way, and to promote healthy eating, the ‘Food is Fun Pavilion’, sponsored by Langage Farm, is fun for the whole family. Children can get stuck in with making and baking while parents can gain ideas for cooking at home.
The Pavilion will also have several activity tables where children can play with making spaghetti towers, guess ‘what’s in the bag’ or take part in the Flavour Fest quiz.
‘Food is Fun’ is also a learning destination of the children’s university and stamps can be collected for those that bring along their passport.
