To Fork Trail
Food Trust and the NFU amongst others, Farm to Fork is the first initiative of the Tesco Eat Happy Project, a major new food education programme that is committed to improving children’s relationship with food.
Specially trained colleagues in more than 700 Tesco stores across the UK will teach children about different foods and giving practical demonstrations, for example, baking bread, tasting new fruits and vegetables and learning all about fish.
Farm to Fork will see food suppliers across the country opening their farms and factories to teach children how, for example, milk is produced, where eggs come from and how lettuce grows.
Tesco’s ambition is to give every primary school in the UK an opportunity to go on the trails, to support their syllabus in learning about food, farming and nutrition.
Burnside Tesco Farm to Fork Trail Leader, Karen Jarvie said: “It was a pleasure having Burnside Primary School attend our Farm to Fork trail today.
“The aim of these trails is to inspire primary school children all over the country to learn more about the food on their plate and you could see that the children today were really excited and enthusiastic.
“We look forward to welcoming more schools in the area to come and experience a trail for themselves.”
