External Links: food outdoors
Muddy Faces is all about getting outdoors with your groups, families and friends. Food and the outdoors – its fundamental stuff. Playing and getting messy; learning about cooking and eating food outdoors offers great opportunities to stimulate the senses, learn skills and understand where our food comes from. It’s very satisfying to eat food you have prepared yourself, and it helps us to be adventurous with our food choices.
We have compiled a list of interesting & inspiring websites on food outdoors including the main governing bodies, national organisations and initiatives – many are directly related to working & playing outdoors, some have a wider remit or are included because we think they may be helpful to know about.

We do our best to keep these links up to date. If you find any broken links or have something you think should be added, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘links’ in the subject line. Thank you.
