"Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons has found that the younger generation have a few things to learn about food provenance. Research conducted by Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons has revealed that a shocking one in five children don’t know that milk comes from cows and almost a third of children believe a cow’s diet consists of sandwiches and pizza."
Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons have teamed up with Giovanna Fletcher to help kids understand food provenance; in particular where milk used to make chocolate.
In the video, Giovanna takes some parents and kids back to the farm to learn some truths:
I asked my little girl a few questions about this topic, and here's what she said! (Bear in mind she's only 2!)
"Do you know what chocolate is made from?"
Little Girlie: "Um..I don't know. From the shop!"
"Do you know where milk comes from?"
Little Girlie: "Cows! And you mummy!"
"What do you think cows eat?"
Little Girlie: "Milk!"
Well she is only two, and she got one right! Recent research (children between 4 & 8) reveals what children believe about their food!
* Over 1 in 10 boys believe milk comes straight from the shop!
* A fifth of 5 year old boys thinks chocolate is made of eggs!
* Almost a third of children believe cows eat sandwiches & pizza!
* Finally, 1 in 5 children don't know that milk comes from cows!
While some of the answers are amusing, it's important for children to know where there food comes from.
Do your children know where milk comes from?
