Deirdre with The Cool Food School having fun with kids

Help is here!

Are your struggling to get your child to eat veggies?

Are you tired of throwing out the abandoned carrots and wilting lettuce after each meal?

Are you tearing your hair out every day making different dinners for everyone?

If this is you - then you've come to the right place!

Our goal at The Cool Food School is to help your children eat more veg by making them fun!

The Course

Welcome to "Cool As A Cucumber". This is one of the 6 workshops from our main course "Food Fun for Preschoolers"

During this workshop your child will learn :

  • all about cucumbers
  • food cousins
  • how to make cucumber water
  • go on a trip to the beauty salon
  • how to make cool cucumber snacks

They will also get to meet the slightly annoying Farmer Joe and his banana phone!

Enjoy the workshop at your own pace with your children. It is suitable for children from the age of 3 - 5 years old approximately, although you can use them with younger or older children too!

What comes with the course :

1 fun, interactive, animated food education and simple cooking workshop focused on cucumbers.


  • a mini resource box with a safe knife and peeler, magnifying glass, and some other small bits you'll need to complete the workshop
  • 2 worksheets to help reinforce the learning of the workshop
  • a tips and recipe sheet for you with fun ideas on how to include cucumber in your diet and simple recipes

What you'll need to supply

  • your child!
  • some fresh food (including cucumbers)

Kiddies food cutter and safety food peeler
Free Resource Box

Your FREE mini resource box will contain a set of a safe knife and peeler that will help empower your children to chop and peel fruit and veggies and they are an integral part of the course.

And you can use them for cooking afterwards!

Watch out for our little food explorers!

Ollie, Molly and Chuck will be popping up throughout the workshop - so keep an eye out for them!

And Farmer Joe is a frequent visitor!

What do parents say?

You're a genius!"

Your facilitator, Deirdre, has worked with young children for many years, helping them to get excited about food - away from the rules and regulations of the dining room table - through fun activities, song, play and more.

By making food fun and empowering children to get excited about food and especially veggies, we can help break down the fear of new foods and open their diet to new tastes.

Deirdre has taught these workshops to thousands of children in preschools, montessoris and events earning her this feedback : Deirdre is ... "one of the best educators of healthy eating for kids I’ve ever seen".
