GET City had a food taste test to understand how processed foods are different from non-processed foods. We tasted different kinds of foods, such as fruit snacks versus fresh fruits, and bakery wheat bread versus Wonder bread. Then we tried to answer some questions: Which food do you prefer? Which food do you think is healthier? How many ingredients are in each food? We also talked about why we want to know what is in the food and what we want to know more about foods.
As a bonus, we had special guests today. The crew of “LRN101”, an educational TV show based in Greater Lansing, visited GET City to shoot interviews with us about our experience in the GET City program and some footage of the activities today. The show will air online at LRNsomething.org and locally on City TV and WKAR. It’s awesome!
