Children at a nursery have been learning about what fair trade means and why it is important.

Youngsters at Acorn Day Nursery, in Burton Latimer, learned how to make banana ice cream – before tucking into the tasty dessert.

The town’s Sainsbury’s store had donated the bananas and recipe cards to help raise awareness about fair trade.

Harriet Fry, acting deputy manager at the nursery, said: “Two people from Sainsbury’s brought some fair trade products, including pancakes and bananas, and showed the children how to make them into banana ice cream.

“They loved eating it and we were showing them the fair trade logo and what it means.

“We also gave them leaflets to take home and give to their parents.”
