How It Works
Choose a Subscription
3 month, 6 month or whole year subscriptions available, as well as single box gifts, perfect for a birthday present.
We send a box every month
We deliver our bright and fun packed boxes at the start of the month so you child has lots of time to explore the foods of the month.
Chart progress with your passport
Your membership pack includes a yearbook to collect stickers of foods tried, and collect memories of foods grown and cooked.
What's In A Box?
Each box is built around the Foodies Book of the Month - picture stories set in a veggie patch. Each box explores the star fruit or vegetable and the growing and eating pleasures of the month.
All boxes contain activities on growing, cooking, and tasting as well as some science and PSHE.
But wait... there's more!
When you sign up for a subscription, you will also receive a membership pack, with instructions for parents or carers on how to get the most out of the packs.
Your child will receive a Food Adventurer's Passport, which has pages for each month, with spaces to collect their stickers from their monthly tasting adventures and places to record their growing and cooking activities
You will also have access to a private Little Foodies Club Facebook group, where you can ask questions, share pictures, find new ideas, and meet other families who are exploring food with their children.
Why Join The Little Foodies Club?
There's never been a better time to connect your child with where their food comes from.
There's so much pressure to be a perfect parent and the information about children's food can be confusing and contradictory. But everyone agrees about one thing: eating plenty of fruit and veg is important for good health. But how can we encourage children to eat more fruit and veg without preaching and pressure?
Familiarity with fruits and vegetables can lead to children eating more of them.
Numerous studies have shown that when children are more familiar with foods they are more likely to eat them - that if they are allowed to play with them, touch them, smell them and investigate them, they are less nervous about trying them. One study even showed that children who were shown pictures of vegetables ate more of them! Our club enables children to build their familiarity through the story characters and the activities. Our non-pressured tasting games and passport really encourage children to explore food without stress and in their own time.
Understanding where food comes from is important for us and the planet!
Food grown in season uses the natural resources and climate conditions it evolved to thrive upon. Seasonal food usually requires less artificial light and heat. Importing food from abroad to extend the season requires transport and storage. And food grown in season in natural conditions often tastes better because the plant is able to ripen properly. Looking forward to the season when something tastes its best, is an absolute joy.
Hands on practical activities for some screen-free family fun, fresh air & food!
Everyone wants to spend more time off their screens and doing something to make happy memories and build skills. But when we are so busy it can sometimes be exhausting to try to think of what activities to do, and when we have gardens to manage or food to cook, sometimes our good intentions about involving the children can get pushed back - we're only human! These boxes give you a few pre-tested and practical things to do together over the month so you can relax knowing you have made some memories and built your child's food confidence, bit by enjoyable bit!
What Our Past Members Said:
My son loves it when his Little Foodies Club pack arrives! The books now have their own special bag and he keeps getting them out to read.
We’ve tried some of the recipes too. Pumpkin soup was a hit!
He can get on with the colouring and puzzle sheet on his own and likes to do the garden jobs with his dad. He is very proud of the food that he has grown!
I can’t recommend these books and the linked activities highly enough.
Lis J - Mum to Seb
I have 4 year old twins who were anti vegetables like it was a religion; but their minds were changed when we got to know vegetables together as a family through these amazing little books.
Being able to connect the vegetable adventure to the time of year has been amazing for getting my girls to connect to the produce around them. They love strawberries but now they know that strawberries are for summer, and when they come to the supermarket they are so much more aware of what should be fresh.
Claudia H, Mum to Evie & Maddie
We are passionate about a world where everyone has access to good quality, fresh, nutritious food.
The Little Foodies Club is one of the ways we are trying to help, to raise a generation of children who will understand the value of food, how it is grown, why we shouldn't waste it, and how our eating can impact the world we live in.
But the reality is that at the moment, although we live in a world of plenty, that abundance isn't shared equally. There are many, many amazing organisations who work tirelessly to put food onto the plates of children all over the world. We wanted to help in our small way, so we have decided that for every box we sell, we will donate £1.00 to charity. We have chosen two charities to support, one which supports food banks across the UK in providing emergency food to people in crisis and one which supports children in developing countries to access education with a daily school meal. Each charity will receive 50p from every box.
Mary’s Meals sets up community-run school feeding projects in some of the world’s poorest communities, where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. Their idea is a simple one that works. They provide one daily meal in a place of learning to attract chronically poor children into the classroom, where they receive an education that can, in the future, be their ladder out of poverty.
Mary’s Meals began by feeding just 200 children in Malawi in 2002. Today, they are providing more than 1.6 million children with a daily school meal in 19 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Caribbean.
The Trussell Trust
The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of food banks and together, they provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children. The Trussell Trust supports more than 1,200 food bank centres in the UK to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face.
