I always aim to promote a healthy diet amongst the children and aim to educate them from a young age about the foods that they eat. For this fruit picking is the perfect activity, fun in the fields while seeing where our food actually comes from.
This morning we met up with friends to enable the children to pick variety of fruit ranging from raspberries through to black currants and black berries. We also investigated broad beans, shallots and local chard.
The children loved picking (and tasting!) the fruits and were fascinated with the process of shelling the peas. After munching on some of our fruit we set about painting pictures of the morning which was such fun and really got the children talking about what they had seen.
