To Fork Trail

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.”
