Wanderlust Choc Crunch

As important as it is to give our kids healthy and nutritious food, it’s also good to give them a little treat occasionally. This super simple chocolate crunch recipe is the perfect way to do both – sweet, delicious and chocolaty it’s full of flavour but far less calorific than other chocolate cake alternatives. It’s always a big hit with the kids and a great dose of nostalgia for anyone who remembers school dinners as a kid…

I can not recommend kids country enough. I was blown away by this nursery. The staff are absolutely amazing. My little one has come on leaps and bounds since attending. We are heartbroken to be leaving. But thank every single member of staff for making every day an adventure for Finn xxx

We love Kids Country but more importantly our little boy loves it. In the morning he is so happy pointing at the door to get in then once in waddling over to the breakfast table to enjoy breakfast with all his friends & Debs. He doesn't even look back when I leave. When I collect him in the evenings as soon as he spots me he comes over, up into my arms for a big kiss. The girls are great. It's great how they tell you what he's eaten to what they've done in the day, including any cheeky moments. We are so pleased we picked KC and recommend it to everyone X
