Here is our yummy, super healthy, quick and easy guacamole recipe.

A perfect start to bringing cooking into the classroom. No resources needed, and its made in literally 2 minutes.

A great way to get the kids talking about new foods and tasting and trying new foods and fits perfectly into the SPHE curriculum.


Serve this guacamole with what the students have in their lunchbox or ask them to bring in some crackers, breadsticks, pitta breads or maybe even some raw vegetables like carrots, celery or sugar snap peas.

When we went into classrooms and got the students involved the teachers were amazed at how willing the students were to try this and more amazed at how many of them loved it. Not all of the will and thats ok too, but great to exposure them to new foods.
