Food baffles children

A studtractory by the British Trust of Conservation Volunteers has shown that this generation of children do not know how their food grows or where their food comes from.

Under all of the age group sections on our website, we have resources including information sheets, videos and interactive whiteboard activities to teach children about how grain is grown and made into bread. We also have bread making recipes in our recipe section which you could use to create a follow up lesson:
