Our favourite things to eat are treats

Yesterday we ran a quick survey in our class. Our goal was to find out what our favourite meal was - that included dessert.

Around 90% of our class chose fast food as their favourite meal. Burger King coming out on top.
KFC was a close second. A couple of students shared that Subway meals were their favourite.

We then had a close look at a food pyramid that you can find on the Harold website. We discovered that nearly all our food choices fell into the 'Treat' section, where the food is described as 'Sugary, sugary, fatty, fatty!'.

After some discussion we came to the agreement that we did not eat this type of food daily and so hopefully we were not in danger of eating too much sugar and fat.

Today we are going to look at what we actually eat everyday, using the food pyramid again we hope to discover that we have a more balanced diet than that that which was discovered with our favourite food survey.
