Whether you’ve got a foodie fanatic or a picky eater in the family, Tom&Teddy has found a few trips that are sure to tempt their tastebuds
Make Pizza In Rome

When in Rome… learn to make pizza! Head to Navona Square in Rome to whip up a pie just like mama used to make. Rome 4 Kids Tours offers a Pizza Master Class For Pizza Lovers. During a two-hour class, your tot will have the chance to visit one of the city’s best pizzerias. Here they can select their favourite ingredients, learn how to make the dough and bake their pizza in a stone oven. And if that’s not good enough, they can celebrate all their hard work by sampling their creation. Stay at: Hotel De Russie. Tots are sure to love the Froggy teddy bear that they will be gifted on arrival and the special Families R Forte passport. Within the passport they can put the special visa sticker from their stay and write about their Italian adventures. Other pint-sized treats that kids are sure to love include baby bath products, hooded towels and rubber ducks!

Plant Rice In Bali

If you want your kids to think a little greener, take them on a foodie adventure with a difference in Ubud, Bali. Kids will be able to don the traditional farmer’s outfits and join the gardeners from the Four Seasons Sayan in its squelchy, muddy paddy fields. During their time in the fresh air, kids will have the chance to learn about how rice grows, how to plant the baby shoots and how to separate the grain from the chaff. Stay at:  Hidden by the lush Ayung River you will find the Four Seasons Sayan. This boutique resort is the perfect place to get away from it all. Once your tots have planted their rice and taken a tour of the garden, they can learn Balinese crafts at the Pici Pici kids club, which is a bamboo-covered rice barn tucked away in the jungle.


Feast On Fish In Denmark

Whether your tots are large or small, you can have an aquatic adventure in Denmark. Tiny tots will love to visit Hundested Harbour that is just an hour’s drive outside Copenhagen. Here kids can learn about the fauna of the sea and fish for fresh crabs from tanks that are filled by local fisherman. Or if your children are a little older you can head to Øresund near Malmo where you can hire a boat to bring in your own catch. Stay at: In the land of Hans Christian Andersen you would expect a magical hideaway. And that’s just what you get with the Tivoli Hotel. The family hotel comes with themed suites for children, featuring big tops, guard huts and princess beds.
