Where Does Our Food Come From?

A survey by the British Nutrition Foundation

questioned children about where our food comes from.

“Cheese comes from plants,

tomatoes grow underground

and fish fingers are made of

chicken,” according to

many young children

quizzed on where our food

comes from.

Where does cheese come from?

Some of the children thought that cheese came from a plant.

Cheese is a food commonly made from cow’s milk.

But, did you know it’s not just cow’s milk that can make

cheese? Milk from buffalo, goats or sheep can be used too.

Mozzarella cheese (often used on pizzas) is made from the

milk of buffalos.

Where does pasta come from?

When questioned, some children thought pasta

comes from animals. Pasta is made from flour

mixed with water or eggs. It is kneaded into a

dough (a bit like bread) and then made into

sheets, twists, tubes or other shapes. It is cooked

by either boiling or baking.

Where do tomatoes come from?

Some children thought that tomatoes grow underground – a

bit like carrots. They do, in fact, grow above the ground on a

plant. The tomato plant can grow to be very tall. When they

first grow, they are green but as they ripen, they turn red.

Where do fish fingers come from?

The clue for the ingredients of a fish finger is in the

title. No, it doesn’t mean they are made from

fingers! They are made from fish. Shockingly

though, some children thought they were made

from chicken. Fish fingers are usually made from

haddock or cod, which are types of fish.

Where does milk come from?

Do you ever stop to think where your food and drink comes

from? Some children have no idea that milk comes from

cows, research has revealed. Lots of children live in cities

and so have never seen a cow, or even heard one ‘moo’.

Some children said they thought milk comes straight from

the fridge or supermarket, but how did it get there? The

research also revealed that some city-living children

believe that a cow is the size of a double decker bus, and

some think they’re as small as cats.

What counts as one of your five-a-day?

Some children thought that Fruit Pastilles and

strawberry jam counted as part of their daily

fruit and veg. There are lots of health benefits

to getting five portions of fruit and vegetables

every day.

Many children say they know lots about healthy eating, but do not follow it. Why do you

think that is?

Roy Ballam, Managing Director of British Nutrition Foundation, believes schools and

families should work together to educate children and motivate them to make healthier

choices.

Next time you’re in the supermarket, stop and think about where your food and drinks

have come from.

The survey by the British Nutrition Foundation questioned 5,040 UK children.
