Where does our food come from? It seems many of our children haven’t a clue. A few days ago saw the publication of research http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-22730613 which suggests that a significant proportion of children have no idea about the difference between wheat and meat, or dairy and plants.
This weekend could give families all over the country a chance to change that – Sunday 9 June is Open Farm Sunday. The weather forecast is pretty good for much of the country. With so many farms, large and small, all over the country taking part, you’re never far from a participating farm. Take the opportunity (and the children) to visit, and maybe start making the connections between what happens on the farm, and what we all eat. If you eat food, surely you want to know more about where it comes from? Full details at http://www.farmsunday.org
