How much fat do different pizzas contain? - Nov 26, 2020
This week in Science, Year 3/4 carried out an investigation answering the enquiry question ‘How much fat do different pizzas contain?’ The children looked at several different types of pizza boxes and studied the fat content. They discussed reasons why different toppings would make the fat content higher and their research indicated that thin crust pizzas with vegetable toppings were lower in fat compared to pepperoni pizzas with stuffed crust. Some children decided to look at the energy and salt content too and we discussed how pizzas contained lots of both ingredients. The children all concluded that pizzas were not a healthy choice as they contained high amounts of fat.
