Research by the British Nutrition Foundation also found that alarmingly nearly a third of primary school children thought that cheese grows on plants and a fifth said that they had never visited a farm.

Do you have any particular suggestions for how we can encourage and educate children to be more interested in the origins of where their food actually comes from? We’d love to hear from you!
