Where Does Milk Come From?

Does your child know where milk comes from? I’m happy to say that all mine do, we often talk about where our food stuff comes from and we’ve been to plenty of farms and talked about what comes from which animal.

However, according to research from Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons with children aged 4 to 8 years, over one in ten boys believe that milk comes straight from supermarkets. A fifth of five year olds believe that chocolate is made with eggs and a third of children believe that a cow’s diet consists of sandwiches and pizza.

Now I believe my children to be quite food savvy, but when I asked the Little Man how chocolate was made he gave me the ingredients you would put in a cake, milk, flour, eggs, and apparently this is quite common among young children. We will be learning much more about chocolate next week when we visit Cadbury World.

The research by Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons has been followed up with a video by foodie mum of two Giovanna Fletcher designed to show families about food provenance, in particular where the milk comes from to make Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons.

Do you think it’s important for children to know where their food comes from?

Disclosure: I may have been bribed with chocolate to feature this post, but don’t tell the kids shhh!

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
