Local schoolchildren learn about the importance of healthy eating at Drewton’s Farm Shop

Published: 07/02/2014

To coincide with Farmhouse Breakfast Week, Drewton's Farm Shop near South Cave linked up with two local primary schools to help children understand how our food is produced.

The Drewton's team welcomed a party of children from Newbald Primary School on Tuesday (28 January). The children enjoyed two fun-filled hours playing games, making their own sandwiches using the filling of their choice and decorating their own cupcakes.

Katie Taylor, proprietor of Drewton's, said: "The whole idea of Farmhouse Breakfast Week is to remind people of the importance of starting the day with a good breakfast. We also used it as an opportunity to talk to the children about eating healthily and why we should support local producers, farmers and growers. Although the visit enabled us to get across some important messages, we also made sure it was lots of fun.

"Our young visitors were all extremely enthusiastic, and willing to answer questions and get involved. They had a tour of the farm shop and we played a couple of games where they could touch items to guess what foods we were giving them. Once they'd created their own sandwich and decorated their cupcake, they enjoyed tucking into them for lunch."

On Friday (31 January), Drewton's Farm Shop provided foods, which were kindly donated by local suppliers, for children from Elloughton Primary School to try as part of their Farmhouse Breakfast Week activities.

Farmhouse Breakfast Week is an annual, national event that took place between 26 January and 1 February.
