The British Nutrition Foundation recently found out that a third (29 %) of primary school children think that cheese comes from plants, and one in five (21%) had never visited a farm!I find this quite shocking, although we live in a built up area we regularly visit the coutryside and talk about the animals we encounter. My children really enjoy learning about where their food comes from and know that cheese is made from milk which comes from milking cows!
DairyCo has created www.thisisdairyfarming.com, to help people understand a bit more about cows and where dairy products come from. Fronted by TV presenter Adam Henson, the site is packed full of fun films that show you where milk comes from, that cows have friends, and that you probably can’t keep a cow in your garden. They’ve also got a youtube moovie channel and you can keep up with all the moos on twitter @thisisdairy #Discoverdairy.
To help spread the word about this new campaign the lovey folks at Discover Dairy are giving My Mummy's Pennies readers the chance to win £15. Just watch the below video and answer the question in the rafflecopter widget below...
