Many Teenagers Think Oats Grow on Trees


Many children and young adults also believe eggs were a key ingredient in bread, the researchers said.

The survey showed 26% of children thought bacon came from sheep, 29% thought oats grow on trees, while 17% of both children and adults under the age of 30 believed eggs were a core ingredient in bread.

Peter Kendall, president of the National Farmers' Union, said: ''The results show how important it is to teach the adults of tomorrow about the food they eat.

''Everyone should know where primary foods like cereals are grown and the role they play as part of a healthy balanced diet.

''It is critical that children and adults alike understand more about their food, and the role British Farmers play in producing it.''

The survey, conducted on behalf of Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA) in the build up to Farmhouse Breakfast Week awareness campaign, concluded older generations knew ''much more'' about food.

The majority of over 40s questioned knew where oats came from and that bread is made from flour, water and yeast.

The survey was conducted online by OnePoll and YoungPoll during November, prompting almost 3,000 replies.
