where does it come from

I was having a discussion with my4 yr. old grandson today(one of many). he said milk comes from a cow, the farmer puts it in bottles and takes it to the store. I asked him where does hamburger come from? he said The hamburger store of course. It was funny at the moment and then I started thinking of how many things and how many children don't really know where something comes from. Not just meat but dairy products,veges, fruit, nuts, etc. aren't we doing an injustice by not showing,teaching and being a little more self sufficient? Just a thought for the day.

Yes, it is quite the injustice, but I think I take the attitude that if I would rather not know, the kids would probably rather not know too...It's one thing to drink the cow's milk...another thing entirely to chop it's head off.

I agree with Alice. Some things are just better left unsaid. My poor niece was traumatized when her da told her about chicken and ground beef. Now she doesn't eat meat at all.
