Kids have the funniest ideas when it comes to the origins of groceries. I bet everyone believed their parents when they were jokingly told that chocolate milk comes from brown cows while the spotted ones make strawberry milk, but do kids these days really not know where certain foods come from? Having witnessed some unbelievable scenes in British supermarkets with 10-year-old children not knowing what a melon looked like or not being able to say, if a cucumber was a fruit or indeed a vegetable, I’m not quite sure how well healthy eating is taught in this country.
McDonalds however have played around with a customer’s “idea” that their burgers might be made from purple cows with red and yellow spots and have created a fun video that shows where their 100% burgers actually originate from and that’s happy cows that live on green fields across the UK and Ireland. If you want to check out the video and find out more about how McDonalds are sourcing the beef for Big Mac, Quarter Pounder & Co, click play now or check out this article explaining exactly how beef burgers are made over at McDonalds:
