First activity of the day, Samanata and Will talked about foods that contains high amount of salt and sugar and what would happen if we don't have them in moderation. Too much of salt and preservatives will come to hair loss and an unhealthy heart and too much sugar on the other hand will decay our teeth and increase our risk of having diabetes. After the short presentation, we got the kids to get to work on a weighing experiment, weighing out the sugar and salt content of four different foods - a packet of Super Rings, a packet of Tiger biscuits, a small carton of Milo and a small carton of cordial drink and recording the data down on the whiteboard. With the figures on the board, it provided proof that Super Rings had more salt than in Tiger biscuits and that Milo had lesser sugar content than a cordial packet. I think the kids enjoyed it as the home-made weighing scales added a fun element to it.
Overall, it was definitely a very tiring-yet-fruitful day, for everyone.
