Get Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 pupils thinking about the connections between health and diet with this classroom resource for science and PSHE lessons about whether a fictional snack bar should be banned, licensed or endorsed.
A simulated video conference between the marketing executive and the developer of the new 'Fruit Munchy Square' is shown.
The characters, played by actors, discuss the ingredients of the fictional snack bar and their marketing approach.
There's also a spoof advertisement for the 'Fruit Munchy Square' as well as a video podcast by a representative of the 'Healthy Meals Cooperative', also played by an actor, who criticises the fashion for fast food.
The video fits into a detailed lesson plan for primary and secondary science lessons at Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 and should prompt discussion, based on scientific evidence, about the effects of diet on health.
