Today Sian Bolton came in for a second session on healthy food choices. We looked at food labelling on cereal boxes. We were surprised how much sugar is in some cereals. When we compare foods we should look at the lowest energy measurement, fat less than 10 per 100g serving, less than 10g of sugar, fibre more than 5g and sodium (salt) less than 400 mg. Our winners were weetbix and rolled oats.
We also looked at sugary drinks and how many teaspoons of sugar in certain drinks!
Sports drinks are OK if you are doing at least an hour and a half of 'hard out' physical activity.
