The British Egg Industry Council has updated its educational website, www.crackingeggs.co.uk, to offer increased resources for students and teachers.

The council says that the change has been made in response to the approach of Easter and offers Easter exercises, such as egg decorating, along with activities covering nutrition, food safety and recipes, focusing on curriculum areas including science and food technology. Additionally, pupils are encouraged to keep a diary, learn about the structure of hens’ eggs and find out about egg customs throughout the world.
