Flavour of the month!
Norwich-based, Kettle Foods visited Mile Cross Primary School as part of a Food Heroes session within the Country Trust's Food Discovery programme. Food heroes are local food producers, farmers and chefs and are invited to talk to the children about their business.
Thanks to Kettle Foods, the children gained an insight into a successful Norfolk food business and learnt how local potatoes are turned into KETTLE® Chips. They also had the opportunity to think about what flavours worked well together, developed their own seasoning recipe and made their own limited edition potato chips.
The Food Discovery programme enables children to explore where their food comes from with farm visits at the heart of their learning. Pupils grow their own vegetables and herbs in school and are taught to prepare and cook delicious meals using fresh ingredients including the produce they’ve grown. They explore and taste new foods, organise and run their own playground farmers’ market learning all about pricing, profit and the art of selling, visit local farms, meet local Food Heroes, learn about food choices and prepare and share a harvest feast with friends and family.
