Year 7's have been continuing the theme of a healthy breakfast
looking at bread/toast as the basis of our breakfast
butter the slices of bread
then add either a topping or a filling
sweet fillings like apple and jam
savoury fillings like tomato puree and cheese
some chose to put toppings on instead of fillings
then they were either cooked in a sandwich maker
or in the oven
we learned that a sandwich maker seals the bread around the edges and some can even cut the sandwich in half. Sealing the bread stops the fillings from spilling out and keeps the heat in for longer. The sandwich maker cooks the bread on both sides at the same time- however if a disadvantage of using a sandwich maker is that you cannot see your filling/s- so you may not know what you are eating...
our students now also understand how to balance our breakfasts by having a carbohydrate and some protein- baked beans are great because they cover two food groups- protein and fibre- with bread they make the breakfast balanced- our students know that using wholewheat bread will add more fibre to the outcome too...
