A team from Peterborough-based Produce World staged veg art sessions at the annual Kids Country Food and Farming Day at the East of England Showground enabling many children to have fun while finding out more about vegetables.

About 5,500 schoolchildren attended the event, which brings together retailers, growers, and food processors.

Agronomy administrator Rachel Ilgunas said: “We love attending the event and the children have a lot of fun with the veg art, but it is also a chance to talk to them about vegetables - where they come from and how important they are to good health.

“I had great support from the team at Produce World and they saw hundreds of children, and helped them to create lots of imaginative veg art creations.”
