You know how the song goes: "I believe that children are the future, teach them well and let them lead the way..." Apparently, that includes where apples come from. A new poll has revealed that about a fifth of British children don’t know that apples come from trees.
Researchers polled 1,000 kids, age six to 12, and found that a significant amount of them don’t know where their favorite fruit really comes from. Out of those kids, about 20% don’t know that apples grow on trees, and 80% think that bananas do grow on trees.
After hearing about the survey, TV personality Katie Piper decided to team up with organic fruit juice company Honest Kids to offer a group of children the chance to spend a day on a fruit farm… to learn where the heck these fruits really do come from.
