We have an area that we call The Wilderness - just an area planted with low shrubs and groundcover plants good for wildlife. It could easily be adapted to add some plants that could be foraged for - as has been said alpine strawberries, raspberries etc. and bullaces (a type of wild cherry-plum) make lovely pies and wine and are loved by birds too.
Just make sure the children know how to recognise the privet berries as these need to be left for the birds rather than foraged for - don't want them with upset tums
