Joe Wicks workouts for kids

Each bite-sized HIIT-style workout combines short bursts of no-equipment-required exercises that can be done indoors or outside. Another series sees Joe team up with Hey Duggee to break down simple exercises from squats to shadow boxing to teach kids good form from a young age. There’s plenty for teens and adults too.  

BBC Good Food Kid’s Kitchen 

This collection of videos and recipes will help children learn to create delicious dishes from scratch. The videos teach essential skills from chopping to roasting, while step-by-step recipes put the skills learned in the videos into practice. Aimed at seven to eleven year olds to do with a little help from an adult, younger kids will need more supervision and there’s lots for older kids to learn too. Globe-trotting recipes include an easy Greek-style pasta salad, a veg-packed korma and cheesy black bean quesadillas. Yum!
