Online Hub Session – Thursday 7th October: how do you milk an Oat? and what great grating!

Hello! No more missing out, here at Kids Kitchen we are coming to you! In our Kids Kitchen Online Session we want to make sure each family has the opportunity to join in, feel included, have fun and cook great food together with one of our pressure free cooking activities wherever you are, whatever your circumstances. Meet other parents from the comfort of your own home, explore skills, tastes and ideas – Welcome Everyone!

Let me tell you what we have planned for our first bumper online session which combines two favourite activities in one and is as much for the grown-ups as it is the kids!

  • 45 minute session of fun for the kids with a simple food based sensory play activity
  • We can chat over a hot cuppa- about food, recipes or anything else that takes our fancy – just like a normal playgroup!
  • There’s a full-blown recipe that will see you through to lunch if you’re feeling adventurous (no pressure!)

Our session leaders will be there to facilitate the activity and discussion and to answer your questions and share some tips and ideas.

So, how DO you milk an oat?! Join us this week and you will find out how to make your own oat milk and what you can make with it!

This is a lovely sensory play activity that even the youngest of toddlers will love! All you need is some porridge oats, a big bowl, some water and an old (clean!) sock, pair of tights or muslin. The kids can squeeeeze, squidge and squash the oats in the water to their hearts content whilst we chat! We will also be talking you through how to use the oat milk, which leads to our next great activity…Grating!

A simple way to get your kids engaged in helping in the kitchen, and lots of fun too! All you need is a grater and some ‘great’ veg! We still have loads of courgettes, but carrots, potatoes all lend themselves well to grating, as do many others, especially as we are coming into the season of fabulous root veg.

And to champion what you have just made, we will talk you through turning your delicious oat milk and grated veg into simple and tasty savoury pancakes for lunch too! Just add some flour and lunch is ready! What’s not to love?!

Check out our Asian inspired recipe, which also includes what to do with the leftover oat pulp. And if you drink your oat milk, no matter, you can still make some tasty pancakes: Aneta made some delicious root veg fritters with sparkling water and this one uses juicy veg!

If you need a bit more inspiration, or to cook along again, why not check out the oat milking in our Savoury Pancake video here and the great grating going on in our Shepherdess Pie Recipe Activity Video here!
