Consuming Issues: Would you let a dog into your workplace? Listen to Donna Ferguson
Would you take your to work for a day? New research has shown our canine colleagues can improve staff wellbeing and productivity. One report says workers become less stressed and more trusting with each other after playing with a dog. And it’s proven to work! Nestlé began allowing its 1,000-plus employees to bring their dogs into its headquarters well over a year ago and so far 56 staff have joined the Nestlé’s Pets at Work programme. Award winning journalist Donna Ferguson joins Georgie.

Consuming Issues: Would you ever try eating insects? Listen to Constance Deseine, from Jiminis
Eating insects for nourishment is not a novel idea and has never became common in Modern Europe…until now perhaps? There is a need, as by the year 2050, the planet's population is estimated to be around nine billion people, so we'll need to find another source of protein other than animals and food stuffs like beans cheese and eggs. One company that is currently doing just that is from France and called Jiminis. It's appearing at the Good Food Show which starts Friday 20th for the weekend and it's highlighting fresh healthy ingredients. Constance Deseine, Director of Sales for Jiminis joins Georgie Frost to explain all.

Consuming Issues: Is there another way to get a good education without paying high fees? Listen too Dr Kairen Cullen
The price of education in the UK continues to make headlines. Students are having to pay extortionate prices for university. They are leaving with a mountain of debt. And with prices looking likely to increase in the autumn of 2017, under new Tory legislation, is there a cheaper way to learn new skills without paying over the odds? Well, one-way people are doing it is by turning to digital tools, and apps rather than pay for expert advice or services. In fact, over 40% have done this, according to Halifax Insurance. Georgie Frost was joined by Dr Kairen Cullen, and Educational Psychologist.
