London is a foodie’s paradise; home to some of the best restaurants and culinary schools in the world. And while opportunities abound for adults looking to enjoy a memorable meal in the city, it is also perfectly possible to get your little ones involved in the adventures of London’s diverse and exciting food scene. We are highlighting the best kids’ cooking classes in London: from lessons in healthy eating to the creation of chocolate-covered treats.

The Chocolate Museum in Brixton is open weekly on Sundays between 11am and 6pm and offers drop-in chocolate workshops for kids. The workshops run for one hour and tickets cover the cost of ingredients to make your own truffles. You will order ingredients from the menu and facilitators will be on hand to help as you make your own chocolate treats. The workshops are also excellent for children with nut allergies, as they are entirely nut-free.
