P3 Investigate Sugar

As part of P3’s focus on Health & Wellbeing we want to investigate sugar, discovering:

  • Is it good for you?
  • Can you have too much?
  • How much is OK to have in a day?
  • How much is in some of our food?

We identified that cereal and drinks would be a great place to start our investigation as we all enjoy them, with most having them everyday.

Packaging for both cereal and drink often shows clearly the amount of sugar in the product.

It would be appreciated if you could send in any old cereal boxes / drink containers so we can investigate the sugar content. We plan to chart this in Maths on graphs as part of our study on data handling.

Thank you for your help
