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.
