Healthy Living in Food Technology

See all News

In Food Technology we have been learning about healthy living. Learners have been looking at the sugar content in some of the drinks that they drink daily. We measured out the sugar to visually see how much sugar we actually consume in an Energy drink. We were shocked to find that in a can of Rock Star energy drink there are 19.5 teaspoons of sugar per can. This shocked us all! Group 7 were set the task of designing their own healthier alternative so they decided to make some healthy fruit smoothies. Learners worked really hard planning what they would need for their smoothie and writing a step by step guide for others to follow. They also used safe knife skills using the bridge method to keep themselves safe. Once we tasted the smoothies we were shocked at how tasty they were and how much of an energy boost they gave us.
