How much SUGAR is in our morning tea snacks?
The children loved counting out the teaspoons of sugar and learnt that having a piece of fruit/veg for morning tea is better than packaged food. Parents also really responded to this and we were all really surprised with the sugar content in some of these 'everyday' foods. A great activity to do every year.

Children select one snack from morning tea
There is 4 grams of sugar in every 1 tsp so I quickly worked it out for each child
Each student then counted the amount of teaspoons of sugar into a small gladwrap bag and wrote the amount in the circle on the worksheet.
We then stapled the worksheet and the empty packet together and hung up.
