An Experiment

### How much sugar are you eating for breakfast???

What to do first . . .
• Pick out a cereal that you would eat for breakfast.
• Pour a bowlful of cereal that you would normally eat.
Measure one serving size

Starthere

• Look at the nutrition label on the cereal box. You will find a measurement for one serving size.
• In the second bowl, measure out one serving of the cereal.
Finding the sugar content . . .
• Look at your food label again to find out how much sugar is in one serving.
Calculating the sugar content
• You now need to figure out how much sugar to measure out. There are 12 grams of sugar in one tablespoon.
• Calculate the amount of sugar in one serving size of cereal.
Measuring the sugar content . . .
• Measure out this amount of sugar and place it in one of the clear cups.
• Calculate the amount of sugar that is in your normal bowlful of cereal. Measure this and place it in the second cup.
Compare your findings
• Were you surprised at the difference between your portion size and the recommended portion of cereal?
• Were you surprised at how much sugar you were eating in a “typical” bowl of cereal?
• Can you see how easy it could be to eat too much sugar for breakfast when you do not read nutrition labels or pay attention to portion size?
