 Food & Nutrition – We would have been cooking a traditional Brazilian meal in class this week. The recipe can be found here. Ask your parent/carer if you can make this with their supervision (you could make a vegetarian version using extra beans and vegetables if preferred). Alternatively, you could have a go at creating the meal you planned for your footballer, or find a different South American recipe. Please take a photograph of your completed dish and send by email so we can share it with the class. We will be evaluating the meal next week.
