Today we continued our functional skills looking at portion sizes and nutrition facts.
we learned that fibre is good for our gut.
Pupils worked out what fibre is and how much we should be eating per day. We divided this by 3 meals and then made a simple meal of sandwiches and crisps (tortilla).
Pupils then worked out that our jam sandwich and crisps brought 3.6g of fibre and that this was below our recommended nutrition.
We were all shocked at the amount of crisps in a portion of tortilla chips (45g according to the packaging) and a lot of pupils said it was too much for them to eat.
Next we will look at other nutritional factors of foods we would have in a picnic!
