Testing values and attitudes: Diamond ranking:
Life Skills Trip: Visit to McDonalds
Back in School: Children checked what was in the bags and looked at the packaging of their meals. They were surprised to see how much packaging one single meal contained and how much rubbish it had produced. Thank God most of it was recyclable!!!!!!
Food from source to sale Food Miles, what are they?
Food Miles (Interactive game) Choose a food/drink to find how far they have travelled Add up menu total for food miles of the meal
FOOD MILES GAME Team member’s names:- We chose the following menu and found out how many food miles each had travelled. Drink – Main course – Potatoes – Vegetables – Pudding – Food miles travelled –
Menu choices Tap water, Fizzy drink, Orange juice, Tea, Coffee Pizza, Shepherds pie, Cod in batter, Roast Lamb (New Zealand), Roast Lamb (local) Oven chips, Chips (from local potatoes), Baked Potatoes (local), Roast potatoes (frozen) Broccoli, Sprouts, Carrots, Cauliflower, Leeks, Baked beans Strawberries (all year round), Strawberries (local - summer only), Banana, Orange, Ice cream (local), Sponge cake
Team member’s names - What we have found out 1.How do we measure the distance our food has travelled? 2.What do we call what our McDonalds meal is wrapped in? 3.Is it better for the environment for us to buy lamb from New Zealand or from Wales? 4.Which travels further coffee or tap water? 5. What words describe food that is grown near to where we live?
