Meal One is an immersive and playful family show featuring Helbert, his Mum, a dog and a cat. We follow them as they prepare for the day by planting a plum stone in the bedroom floor.

But when they go downstairs for Meal One – the first meal of the day – they discover a kitchen full of tree roots busily munching through anything edible they can find.
