Hidden sugars in drinks…

Today we looked at some of our favourite drinks, we began to think about why they are so tasty and decided that the sugar made them so lovely to drink. We then talked about the effects of sugar.at first we predicted which drink we thought contained the most amount of sugar and ordered them …

 

we we were then given the sugar in bags for each drink and in groups, we used the weights and measuring scales to work out how much sugar there actually is. We researched that a child should have only 24g of sugar in a day so we’re very shocked to find that most of the drinks contained way more than this!!!

 

what an interesting lessons! We finished by thinking about what we could do with the information to improve our health. Some of us have decided to make the bottle of coke last a week or instead of drinking the full bottle, share it with a sibling.

 

Thank you for so much fun!
