Do children really know where food comes from?
It seems that kids ranging in ages
8-15 do not have a good idea where their animal food comes from.
A recent study in the UK shows that
more than one in ten
(11%) 8 year olds don’t know where pork chops come from, and many
more have no idea where yoghurt (18%) or cheese comes (11%) from.
The study also suggested that city
children are twice as likely as countryside kids to be unable to
identify that beef burgers come from cows (8% compared to 3%), 10
percent not knowing where yoghurt comes from, compared to 6 percent
of countryside kids.
Furthermore, two percent of city kids
think that eggs come from cows, and bacon is from cows or sheep; and
that Welsh children are the most likely to be clueless about cheese,
one in ten (11%) eight to 15 year olds not knowing that cheese comes
from cows or sheep, compared to just three percent of children in
the East Midlands.
