Sweet mother of god... time to talk to my kids teachers!

Does this count as work experience?

"A blind taste test at our famous salad bar" = 30 kids fingering the next persons salad.... but still a good deal.

Mummy, Daddy we went to the Harvester with school, can we go, can we ? can we ? can we ? can we ? can we ?

They know what they are doing

Catch them as young as you can with your junk food media marketing campaigns ... why not include nursery schools, mother & toddler groups, post- and pre-natal classes .....

Frankie & Bennys have done this for a few years, but good to see an alternative

Seems like a good idea - let the kids eat the mass produced frozen food they serve and they'll never want to go there again.

Whats the difference between a normal tour of the kitchen and A VIP tour of the kitchen? Do you get to see the mouse droppings in the VIP tour?

No you get to eat them!

This is wrong, I'll do what ever I can to make sure my daughter doesn't ever step foot in one of those places.

Food is crap, customer service is a joke, and they dont even allow your kids to help out in the kitchen which is quite clearly advertised on tv!

Lol

Junk food media marketing campaign? They've clearly tried to make it promote healthy food to the kids... While I doubt their menus aren't the healthiest around, I find it hard to believe this will end up promoting junk food.

It's a horrible marketing ploy to get your children hooked on a "restaurant" experience that produces poor quality food. I'd suggest they employ cooks and not chefs. With food produced according to a company standard, so food is the same nationwide. Mostly cooked from frozen, using a microwave.
Not for me, and NOT for any child of mine.

All you people assuming you know what goes on in a harvester kitchen, do you have first hand knowledge or are you just guessing? I worked in a Havester kitchen briefly and it had one rarely used microwave, the majority of the food is cooked on a chargrill, before you start with the holier than thou attitude, try get your facts together, it's not fine dining but its certainly far away from the 'poor quality food' you all think it is.

What is wrong with some people? Food is food.

JJMPSP, food is not food. There is fresh food, as in real food, and then there is pretend food, as in heavily processed, chemically preserved, artificially flavour enhanced "value added" pap, put together by the likes of Bernard Matthews, rest his soul, aimed not at nourishing your children to grow into fine healthy adults, but only at making a profit for shareholders.
I know what I'd rather eat ...

A VIP tour you say? With 30 other people, wow, one would feel special.

Dumb marketeers sitting in their ivory towers, sipping prosecco and munching on canapes.

This is absolutely appalling, a tour of a restaurant?

Whats next, educational school trips to Burger King?

Anyone who is getting on their high horse defending such abhorrent marketing needs their head seeing to, has education fallen so low? No wonder children with 10 A*s cant spell and add up these days.

But on a positive note, they will probably be providing minimum wage employment for your children in the future
