A national survey, commissioned by Woolworths, found that a third of Australian children could not identify fruit and vegetables, nor where the products came from. 92 per cent did not know bananas grew on plants. They struggled to know what grew on tress or what grew in the ground.
British kids weren’t much better. A third of the primary school children thought cheese came from plants. Kids still don’t know where their food comes from.
So, let’s bring gardening into the lives of our kids. Grow a Living Playhouse for Your Kids gardening is a great way to introduce these food types to kids and help them appreciate where they food comes from. There are lots of benefits of gardening with kids, including nurturing their physical and mental health.
