Educating and entertaining program inspires Australian school children

A Walkley-award winning journalist with the ABC, Louise FitzRoy has gone back to her farming roots by establishing ‘From Paddock to Plate’. What began as a radio series and book has morphed into an educational program that is an integral part of more than 100 schools across Australia. Louise spoke to Vegetables Australia about this highly successful project, and what it aims to achieve.

“A major highlight has been witnessing the positive effect that FP2P has had on young people to help them make healthier eating decisions and discuss topics like food miles, sustainability and the environment with their parents, friends and family,” Louise said.

“The domino effect on society has been the most overwhelming and rewarding aspect of this entire FP2P journey and I beam with pride knowing that our Australian farmers have led the campaign to make this happen. FP2P would not exist without them and I am forever grateful.”
