Food to forensics – 8th grade science

snacks 4In their “Food to Forensics” preference six 8th grade boys underwent a “masterchef” challenge. They had to create a healthy snack recipe using ideas from their previous classes. Having researched and altered recipes to make them more healthy they had to plan how to cook them in one double period. Last week was the final challenge. By 10.00 we had six healthy snacks, six smiling faces and plenty of visitors coming to see what was cooking.

Healthy French toast and fruit, hummus and dippers, cinnamon shortbread and fruit, blueberry shortbread with lemon cream cheese topping, tuna pasta surprise and Korean Kimbaps.
