BACON sandwiches, fruit smoothies, cereals and sausages were on the menu for youngsters at the Great Yorkshire Showground yesterday (Monday, January 28).

Children from Starbeck Community Primary School, Harrogate, were the breakfast guests of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society - organisers of the Great Yorkshire Show - at an event to highlight the important role British farmers play in producing our food.

Before tucking in, the children took part in workshops and demonstrations looking at the provenance of food. Deputy headteacher Sally Pitts said: “Children don’t eat breakfast as often as they once did so this event has been excellent at showing the importance of starting the day with good healthy food. It’s been fun as well as educational.”

Workshops were run by Hazel Brow Farm, Richmond, who explained butter making, milk and egg production; Daniel Cartwright of Show Off Chefs who made fruit smoothies; and York farmer Grant Burton who demonstrated sausage making.

The breakfast was cooked by members of Ladies in Pigs, which supports the British pig farming industry.

The event was part of the annual national Farmhouse Breakfast Week.
