Did you know a survey has found that many 12 year old Aussie kids think yoghurt comes from plants?

The survey, conducted by the Australian Council of Educational Research, has shown that upper primary school-aged children have a low level of basic knowledge about agriculture and the origin of whole foods.

Mark Stoneman, former Queensland Agriculture Minister and President of the Isolated Children’s Parents’ Association says, “less people on the land weakens the understanding of primary industries. The sad thing is that children living in urban circumstances used to go up to Uncle Herb’s farm for the holidays. Now they go to Disneyland or the Gold Coast, and they’ve lost that connection with the land”.

The IGA Family Program is making a contribution to raising children’s awareness about where food comes from by offering these fun fact sheets and quizzes.
