Australia’s leading food editor and best-selling cookbook author, Donna Hay, is set to return to Foxtel with a brand new series just for kids, Donna Hay Basics to Brilliance Kids, premiering exclusively on Foxtel’s Lifestyle on Thursday, October 19 at 7.30pm AEDT.

Donna’s vibrant new 8 x 30 minute series will focus on fun and healthy recipes especially for children. Each episode will feature a selection of recipes based on a different theme, including ‘Movie Night’ and ‘Treasure Hunt’, filmed in different Australian locations and featuring children, families and, of course, Donna dishing out fabulous food tips for both kids and their parents.

“It’s so special to be able to introduce kids to the wonders of cooking – I wanted to share the recipes I know they love, plus some really magical activities as part of the food journey”, said Donna.

“It’s all about kids and families enjoying a healthy lifestyle – and having a lot of fun along the way.”

In episode one, Donna prepares some deliciously healthy treats for a kids’ movie night: peanut fudge chocolate slice, coconut popsicles, nacho bowls and a delightful twist on popcorn featuring choc coconut, maple butter, cinnamon sugar, lime and chilli.

Donna Hay is one of the world’s leading food creatives and a much-loved household name whose brand continues to soar, encompassing everything from her self-titled magazine to her best-selling cookbooks, extensive homewares range and online retail store.

Since launching the magazine in 2001, Donna has released 26 cookbooks, which have sold over six million copies worldwide and been translated into 10 languages, setting the benchmark for food publishing worldwide and inspiring a whole new generation of cooks.

In 2016, Donna hosted the popular series Donna Hay Basics to Brilliance, an 8-part cooking show on Lifestyle Food that showed viewers how to master a repertoire of simple recipes and use easy variations to transform them into something brilliant.

Donna Hay Basics to Brilliance Kids is produced by Donna Hay Productions and is exclusive to Foxtel’s Lifestyle.

Donna Hay Basics to Brilliance Kids premieres on Thursday, October 19 at 7.30pm AEDT on Lifestyle. Following its broadcast on Lifestyle each week, each episode will be available to watch from Foxtel’s on demand library, or streamed on demand on Foxtel Now.
