The Great Food Journey
  • Birds Eye has 65 years of expertise in growing and nurturing vegetables and making them the best quality choice for family meals.
  • To celebrate its 65th year, Birds Eye is going back to their roots and giving every child in the UK the chance to give growing a go.
  • Birds Eye is running a free pea seeds on-pack promotion which is being extended to schools and supported by the NSP, to engage the nation's teachers and pupils.
  • Birds Eye wants to see children and families gaining a better understanding of the journey their food goes on before arriving on their plates.
  • In celebration of Birds Eye’s 65th anniversary, National Schools Partnership has helped develop ‘The Great Food Journey’ – a brand-new, hands-on project which teaches pupils about the journey food takes from farm to plate.
  • The programme, designed for primary schools (pupils aged 4-11), is packed with vibrant resources and great teaching ideas for your whole school.
  • We are offering up to 150 free packets of pea seeds so pupils in your school can start to grow their own pea plants at school or at home.
  • Registering is easy! Visit for more information:
