Did you know that less than 10% of children can name an English apple? Although there are thousands of apples home grown here in the UK, a recent study revealed just how few children can name a variety. I have to admit, if you ask my kids what kinds of apple there are, they would answer simply red or green. Let’s be fair though, they are 2 and 4.
In all seriousness though, this is why last year we started our own little vegetable patch for us to grow together at home. Something that we plan to repeat again this year. We want our kids to understand where their food comes from, and to get a step closer to nature. The kind of understanding that only comes first-hand by getting your hands dirty. This is why I loved the sound of the Sudocrem Get Out and Grow campaign.
