Healthy Eating at Before & After School Club

At Lakeview Dawn Until Dusk we have been looking into the sugar content that is in our drinks.

Using bags of sugar the children enjoyed taking turns at trying to work out how much sugar was in each drink. Using words such as ‘more than’, ‘less than’ and ‘same’ we worked our way through the board putting our answers against the drinks. We were all shocked to find out how much sugar was in our favourite drinks. We were then able to discuss different healthy food and drink choices that are available. We also discussed the importance of brushing our teeth twice daily and the effects of these sugary foods and drinks on our teeth.

Keywords the children used as we carried out this exercise were Sugar, Sweet, Teeth, Brushing, Decay, Measure, Healthy, Toothpaste and Twice a day.
