Beath High School

March 25th, 2011

Hi everyone

I had a lovely surprise this week when I received a package from Beath High School in Fife.

The children there have been learning about the benefits of buying and eating local food, and have produced some posters advertising the benefits of doing just that.  They looked at all different kinds of locally available food including Scottish berries, Scottish cheese and Scottish seafood too.  Here are a few examples of the posters:

It is great that the children are taking more and more interest in where their food comes from and of course we at NFUS hope that initiatives like this will encourage them to buy Scottish produce when they grow up!  Well done to all the children for some fabulous work.

The Scottish Government has launched a new smartphone web app which will make it easier for shoppers to find out what’s in season while they’re at the supermarket.
The free smartphone web app allows shoppers to search for a particular fruit, vegetable, fish or meat and find out whether it’s in season. In addition, users can search by month and find out exactly what’s at its peak at the moment. 

If you are a smartphone user and would like to download the app, you can do so by following http://m.eatinseason.org.uk
