What they say: Making it easy to plan a well balanced diet, this wooden set features items from the five food groups. Includes watermelon, milk, cheese, fish, egg and much more! 21 handpainted pieces store neatly in four wooden crates. Encourages counting, sorting, pretend play, and an interest in food and nutrition.
What we say: “My son loves playing at the kitchen area at nursery so when we were given the opportunity to use some of the Melissa and Doug wooden food, we jumped at the chance! They came in small wooden crate style boxes and each crate had either meat, dairy, bread or fruit in. They are of great quality as they are hand painted so each piece of food is very similar to the real thing! Also a great way of teaching my son the importance of healthy eating and nutritious food. Absolutely great quality.
My son is learning to speak so this was a great way of getting him to repeat the names of each food item. He extended his play by pretending to eat the different foods, he also pretended to cook mummy and daddy some dinner. This has just confirmed that my son now needs a Melissa and Doug kitchen!”
Melissa and Doug Food Groups costs £16.99 and is available from Smyths.
