Yummy times at sydney royal easter show 2016
The annual Royal Easter Show held at Sydney Showground is always a highlight of the year, ever since the first show in 1823. A prestigious event that brings together agricultural themes, rural country vibes, and loads of amusement park fun, this two week long affair is always highly anticipated by everyone old and young.
This year, Yummy Times was honoured to be a part of this grand event, and was a special part of the Preview for Primary Schools on Wednesday 16 March 2016. Our adorable team mascot Yummie was delighted to meet the 700 primary school students that were lucky enough to get entry into the limited event. The students, teachers, and volunteers were all cheerfully greeted by Yummie and the team, and were even invited to sing-a-long to the ‘Be SEEDsational: It’s Your Time’ with the mascot! The school children readily took up the challenge, and sang an admirable performance to their peers.
With a small stand for our book presentation, students were also given the opportunity to enter our ‘Win-a-Book’ competition. Yummy Times’ newly published book, titled “Be SEEDsational Discover the Magic” is aimed to be an entertaining, yet educational tool to help growing children lead healthy lifestyles. It is the first volume in the series ‘Be SEEDsational’, a compelling tale of magical discoveries revolving around educational themes of sustainability, healthy eating and self-identity.
As part of the event, the students took part in hands-on activities and numerous exhibits to learn about various aspects of farming and food production, to support and raise awareness for healthy lifestyles and fresh produce. With such a beautiful and educational message, Yummy Times couldn’t be a prouder contributor of the Sydney Royal Easter Show 2016.

Chocolate Making Workshop
Chocolate is a delicious snack and when eaten in moderation, is a perfect way to treat yourself!
Dark chocolate is a great, healthier alternative to sugary milk chocolate, and it even contains some beneficial antioxidants.
Fruit such as strawberries and cherries are perfect for coating with a little bit of chocolate as a yummy treat for a special occasion.
Yummy Times Visits TasmaNia!
Yummy Times recently visited Tasmania to explore some of the fantastic local blueberry farms, organic markets, beautiful gardens, and organic vineyards. The local produce was fresh and delicious!
It is always a great option to visit your local farmer's markets to support local farmers and your community. The produce is not only fresher, but buying produce this way can help to reduce wastage and the environmental impact of transporting the produce from the farm to the supermarket.
