Today in Funky Foods Opal class looked at the importance of eating a healthy breakfast. They were tasked with using an online supermarket website to search for – and budget – a breakfast plan to feed a family of four for 5 days. They were given £8 to complete their task and had to include a main (cereal/toast/eggs etc), a drink (juices/milk/water) and a piece of fruit or a yoghurt. They found the task interesting and were shocked at how difficult it can be to budget sensibly.
They then had the chance to measure and weigh a suggested portion of cereal and compare this to their usual amounts at home.
They are very excited for next lesson where they will be making vegetable empanadas and guacamole.
