Children 'confused about food'

Almost a third of UK primary pupils think cheese is made from plants and a quarter think fish fingers come from chicken or pigs, suggests a survey.

Nearly one in 10 secondary pupils thinks tomatoes grow under ground, according to the poll for the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF).

Professor Judy Buttriss, director general of the foundation, told the Today programme's Sarah Montague that "things tend to go wrong as children grow older".

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 3 June 2013.
