Resource Overview

Meet Farmer Jack! He’s got some fascinating stories to tell, all about growing and eating delicious fresh fruit and vegetables. In this video, Farmer Jack shows us how to make a super salad, with an interesting twist…
As well as being a great standalone resource, the Farmer Jack films can be used to inspire different areas of learning.

After watching this video, why not encourage pupils to apply what they’ve learned? As Farmer Jack tells us, we should waste not, want not: food waste is bad for our planet, so it’s important that we eat as sustainably as possible. We can do that by including lots of local, seasonal produce in our diet, but we should try and use as many different parts of a plant as we can to avoid waste! Challenge your pupils to make a creative salad using every part of a plant, and including at least 1 ingredient they’ve never tried before. This recipe is a great place to start developing children’s cooking skills, and who knows where they might end up…

Follow Farmer Jack on his journey by watching the rest of our fabulous food films in the related resources section on the left of this screen.
