Summary For the Juniors, for students aged 6-8 years, aims to stimulate children's curiosity and imagination, widen their horizons and encourage them to explore their environment, present enjoyable experiences which relate broadly to the lives and interests of the children and raise issues.Each series is arranged in groups of programs relating to a particular theme.How many children believe that food comes from the supermarket This series of six programs looks at what happens to certain foods before they reach the supermarket shelves.How do the crops grow? What does the farmer do? What happens after harvesting? How are they processed and, finally, how do we eat them? Comparisons are made between the needs of the crop with our needs as humans for nutrition. Why are these foods good for us?Each program features a cartoon animal that prompts children to question or ponder the issues raised.Today: In a school playground, children eat and talk about apples and various apple products. Why do apple trees grow apples? It all starts with the honey bee.Two children living on an apple orchard - along with their dog - demonstrate what's involved in growing apple trees. What do they need in order to grow? How are they harvested? The program follows the apples to the markets and looks at how fresh apples are processed into apple juice and apple cider vinegar
