That’s a question that some teenagers might struggle to answer correctly if this article is to be believed. It suggests that teenage schoolchildren think bacon comes from sheep and that oats grow on trees. Many also thought that eggs were the main ingredient in bread. The results comes from a survey conducted on behalf of the Home Grown Cereals Authority as part of the Farmhouse Breakfast Week awareness campaign. Whilst the majority of over 40s questioned knew the answers to the simple questions, the results found that 26% of children thought bacon came from sheep, 29% thought oats grow on trees, and 17% of both children and adults under the age of 30 believed eggs were a core ingredient in bread. Based on the findings it appears that are some shocking gaps in the knowledge of the younger generation.
