Pierre Elliot Trudeau: Hot Lemonade

Noriko Baba, B.A.S.E. Cooking Class Animator

fullsizerender2_editAt Pierre Elliot Trudeau Elementary, we made hot lemonade! Students learned how much sugar a store bought lemonade bottle contains (40g in ONE SMALL CONTAINER!) and discussed the negative health effects of eating too much sugar. Alternative natural sweet ingredients such as Agave and Stevia were introduced in class, and each student tasted the differences between these sweet ingredients as compared with white sugar and honey. Also, student learned how to get a lot of lemon juice with a lemon squeezer and enjoyed smelling and touching many kinds of spices such as cloves, cardamom, cinnamon sticks and ginger. We cooked with spices, ginger and lemon juice. The lunch educator, Ms. Mary, and Sarah, the student helper of the hot lemonade cooking class, had lots of fun with Ms. Noriko and the other students!
