Lesson summary

Do you know how much sugar is in your foods? Much of the added sugar in our diet comes from the processed foods and drinks we consume. Go explore your pantry to find out how much sugar there is in the foods you have. Then use this information to create a poster advertising why it’s important to look closely at labels to identify the sugar content in your food.
