A Dorset farmer has created a book teaching children where their food comes from after being incensed by the results of a survey.
Dave Selby was shocked to hear one third of urban children had no idea where and how food is produced.
In 2015, he created a book titled ’Where does my food come from?’ with the aim to get children to understand and respect their food and health.
He said: "I first decided to write this book for children after hearing on the news a survey with children about where their food comes from.
"Most said it comes from a supermarket. They had no idea that it all starts on a farm.
"Food is something we all need in life - a good balanced, healthy diet every day. Food should be respected as something very special. We put it into our bodies and it is the fuel we need to get us through the day.
"Also, children must be made more aware of the fantastic jobs and career opportunities that there are in agriculture. Farming is one of the most advanced industries out there, working with the most up-to-date technology.
"With the population of the world expanding all the time, farming is going to need many clever young people to work in a very modern industry."
Mr Selby sent us a copy of his book after reading our article: Fish fingers are made of chicken and pasta comes from animals, say Britain’s youngsters.
It is dedicated to his daughter Grace Emma Selby who tragically died in December 2008, aged 18.
