Chocolate Investigation in Year 4!

Willow and Aspen Class worked together to compare and comment on a wide variety of chocolate. They were asked to judge a chocolate that was similar in content (such as dark chocolate with 70% cocoa content) but differing greatly in price. They considered the texture, taste and flavour. The results were surprisingly not based on how the expensive the chocolate was, instead the children seemed to favour milk and white chocolate, overwhelmingly rejecting dark chocolate. In nutrition, we will investigate whether this has anything to do with sugar content. Is it true that the higher the amount of sugar, the more attractive it is to children? Watch this space!
