Which breakfast food do you think contains the most iron?
b. Waffles and syrup
c. Total breakfast cereal with milk
-Many breakfast Cereals contain iron which means that it is magnetic.
-Try the experiment on the next page to see which of your favorite cereal contain iron.
Experiment: Is my breakfast food magnetic?
1.Place the magnet in the bowl.2. Pour 1 cup iron-fortified cereal, such as "Total," into the mixing bowl.3.Add 2 cups of hot water.4. Stir the water and cereal for at least ten minutes. (Thirty minutes will give the maximum iron recovery.)5. Carefully take the magnet out of the bowl.
6. The black residue left on the white magnet is iron.
-1 Cup iron-fortified cereal (Total)
-2 Cups hot water-Deep mixing bowl or glass-Spoon-White Magnet (or painted white)
