Food mysteries /

Abstract: This program is designed to teach 11- to 14-year-olds about the mysteries of food by using the kitchen as a laboratory to "experiment" with food. Each member's booklet also focuses on nutrition information and puzzles that reinforce the material in the experiments. The member's booklets can be used in sequence or individually as a supplement to food preparation activities. Examples of the experiments include a look at how yeast makes bread rise, how the color of fruits and vegetables can be changed and easy tests for finding fats and starch in foods. The leader's guide provides additional information on the facts behind each experiment, tips for helping members with activities and the answers to questions about nutrition or the experiments themselves.
