From the Chilled Food Association, this resource helps children to think about the development of a new food product. The materials are aimed at STEM ambassadors but they can readily be adapted for use by teachers in the classroom.
The materials consist of a lesson plan, stimulus materials and suggested activities. These activities see children investigating the different stages in the development of a new food product. This includes:
* the roles of sensory scientists and taste panels
* understanding taste
* the importance of good hygiene
* product packaging and marketing
