Harvest - Live Lesson

This harvest-themed Live Lesson looks at where food comes from and how it reaches our tables. We explore seasonality, distribution and how family traditions are passed down on our plates.

BBC One’s 'Home Cook Hero' Suzie Lee joins our presenter Mwaksy Mudenda in the studio to share one of her favourite family recipes and helps us to create a delicious and nutritious meal using autumnal produce.

Gardener 'green-fingered George' harvests home-grown veggies in his garden, and shows us what we can plant now to harvest in the winter.

We also go behind the scenes at the Heinz factory to learn how they make soup on a massive scale and how what they make finds its way from the field to your supermarket.

Curriculum links: Geography/Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE)/Health & Wellbeing/Design & Technology for 5-11 year-olds.
