The Soil Association, well known for its work concerning healthy, humane and sustainable food, farming and land use, later became involved and this partnership means that the project's digital resources are available to all nurseries, children's centres and childminders who have Food For Life Memberships or Awards packages.
They have worked to streamline the resources, improving their structure and accessibility, and at the beginning of each school year, brand new resources will be introduced.
These developments will allow even more school children to have access to excellent quality food education and support.
