The Tesco Eat Happy Project helps primary-age children have a healthier and happier relationship with food.
We run Farm to Fork Trails to help children understand more about the food they eat.
“I tasted the juice from grapefruit and mango and some Asian pear. It was my first time trying an Asian pear. When you bite them they taste like apples and pears at the same time.
We looked around the store. We went into the bakery and saw a baker. He works all through the night to make bread for shoppers in the morning.
We made dough and put poppy seeds and sesame seeds on it. I put my thumb in the middle of the dough and made a hole. It was cooked in a big oven. When it came back we ate the tasty bread.
I really enjoyed it. I’ve never been to that Tesco before. Mum sometimes does the shopping when I’m at school.
But I have been to a little Tesco and a really big Tesco and a medium Tesco. That’s three Tescos.”
“We looked around the store and saw the huge freezer and fridge at the back of the store.
We looked at cereal box labels to see how much sugar is in each one, then we made our own muesli. We used dried banana, raisins, apricots, oats and flakes. It was lovely.
It made us all think about what we eat. I really enjoyed tasting the different ingredients – especially the dried banana.
The shop is near to our school so we all walked there. It was very interesting and we felt important with our tabards on walking around the store.
We learned a lot in one day.”
