Year 4 children from Bourne Westfield Primary Academy have recently been involved in the Eat Happy Project and Farm to Fork initiative.
They have had an opportunity to see where their food comes from, learning about how food is grown and made and also enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of Tesco Bourne.
The children really enjoyed seeing how bread is made in the bakery and were delighted to bring speciality breads back to school to sample. They also sampled different cheeses and found out where they came from and which kind of milk was used in their production.
A highlight of the tour was a visit to the freezer – nicknamed the “ice cave”- which was -19 degrees! The topic linked with the children’s geography work and ‘Fairtrade’.
Tracey Warner, who leads the Farm to Fork initiative for Tesco Bourne, commented: “We have put together Farm to Fork, an initiative dedicated to helping children understand where food comes from. The Tesco ‘Eat Happy’ project is our long term commitment to helping children have a better relationship with food.”
