AHDB Education

It is important to educate children from an early age about where their food comes from and to establish healthy eating habits which will stay with them as they grow.

Currently in the UK, around one in five 5-year-olds and one in three 10-year-olds are overweight or obese*. AHDB seeks to inspire and encourage our young people to adopt a healthier lifestyle through the delivery of educational initiatives covering food, nutrition, farming, growing and the environment.
Our role is:

  • To increase awareness of where food comes from and how it is produced by levy payers
  • To develop a positive image of farming
  • To raise awareness of the nutritional value of foods within a healthy balanced diet
  • To support the development of basic meal and food preparation skills in line with national competencies

Within this educational framework, AHDB supports levy payers by developing a positive image of farming, encouraging healthy eating habits and educating our future generations on the importance of food and farming to the UK

Our goals

The AHDB Education Strategy takes a long term view to ensure that positive change can inspire the next generation.

Our programmes

AHDB education programmes provide teachers with free support and resources to help educate children from primary through to 16+yrs
