UK growers get look in on children drive English growers have been celebrating the turnaround by the Department of Health which will now include home grown vegetables in the school pilot schemes designed to increase children's fresh produce consumption. It has been backed by £52m from the national lottery and will run until 2004, but has been criticised by the NFU because until now the most of the fruit was imported with vegetables not included. Vice president Michael Paske said English growers would now have a better chance to participate, with easy to eat snacking crops such as tomatoes and celery. Meanwhile the Danes have been taking an adult approach to increasing vegetable consumption with a saucy poster. Impressed, the Food Standards Agency is considering new tactics to stimulate Five a Day. {{FRESH PRODUCE }}
