Birds Eye has launched the third phase of The Great Food Journey programme with the National Schools Partnership. The collaboration, which was introduced in 2012, has been developed by education experts to help primary schools teach children where their food comes from and about the nutritional benefits of peas.

Up to 3,500 schools will be taking part in the ‘Grow Your Own’ education programme, which will see Birds Eye and National Schools Partnership provide downloadable lesson plans and activities, interactive whiteboard games and video content about growing plants, life cycles and healthy eating. They will also give away 30,000 packs of pea seeds to teach children where peas come from by taking peas back to their roots and growing them from scratch.

The hands-on project for primary schools has been written to meet the curricular needs of KS1 and KS2 pupils in England/ Northern Ireland and Nursery and P1-6 pupils in Scotland. The content has been designed around specific curriculum links and will be adapted for each age group. 
 
Mark Fawcett, Chief Executive at National Schools Partnership said: “The Great Food Journey programme brings to life the journey of food from farm to fork in a fun, engaging and educationally robust way. We are really excited to be building on previous success and helping more pupils and families learn about where their food comes from and the features of a healthy balanced diet.”
