Year 2 youngsters at Sheringham Primary School have been finding out where their food comes from, in a series of trips and activities looking at healthy eating and food production and preparation.

The latest of these saw pupils take a 'Farm to Fork' trail around the town's Tesco store, visiting the fruit and vegetable aisles and taking a look behind the scenes in the store rooms.

Guided by Tesco staff member Sue Lowe, the six and seven-year-olds also went on a fruit and veg hunt, looked at the sugar content of fizzy drinks and breakfast cereals and made kebabs using chopped fruit including mango, kiwi, strawberries, apples and blueberries.

The Farm to Fork intiative, which is run at Tesco stores around the country, aims to give four-11-year-olds a chance to take a variety of store tours covering topics ranging from sustainability and seasonal produce, to preserving food and eating a balanced diet.
