Curious Minds Award: Maths

Step 4 of the Curious Minds Award


In Mr. Hally’s class, we were learning about teeth and how to keep them healthy. 

We learned that there is a varying amount of sugar in many popular drinks that we consume on a daily basis. 

We decided to undertake an investigation to explore the sugar content in everyday popular drinks. 

We recognised that there was a high sugar content in fizzy drinks, especially Coca Cola. There was also a high sugar content in Fanta and 7up. 

Surprisingly, Monster and Gatorade has a smaller, but not low, amount of sugar per 100g. 

Drinks such as cordial, zero sugar drinks and water were the best drinks to drink on a daily basis as they have a low or no sugar content.
