Two thirds of UK children 'do not know tuna is fish'

By
Nearly two thirds of children in the UK do not know tuna is a fish, a new survey has claimed.

Conducted by pub restaurant brand Table Table, the poll found that 64% of the 1,000 respondents aged 7-11 stumbled when asked about what a tuna is.

Furthermore, 13% did not know beef is the flesh of a cow, while 5% said that tomato ketchup comes from the ground.

Melanie Sykes stated: "I was shocked to see the results from Table Table's study and the lack of understanding from children on some very basic foodie questions.

"Findings showed that most of a child's food knowledge is taken from their parents, so it's imperative that we educate our little ones on what we are eating.

"One of the best ways to do this is by sitting down and spending time together over meals as much as possible."

The survey was conducted to support Table Table's search to find five 'Family Tasting Teams' who will sample food, review new menus and win free meals for a year.
