Discovering the sugar content in breakfast cereals for KS2/3/4.
Stefan Gates, the children’s TV presenter and food expert, is keen to know exactly what’s in the food he eats and does an explosive experiment to find out just how much sugar is in two different breakfast cereals. This video, designed to be shown in class, introduces the Junk Food Science Snack Bar lesson to Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 students. The lesson itself involves discussion about whether a fictional snack bar - the ‘Fruit Munchy Square’ - should be banned, licensed or endorsed by the (fictional) British Institute of Eating Control. Other video and text-based resources are provided to help you deliver the lesson which prompts students to consider the scientific links between health and diet.
