What kind of food do you really dislike?
Do your mum or dad insist on having it at home?

This activity is a once in a lifetime opportunity to persuade your Mum or Dad or carer to BAN one kind of food that you really dislike from your home (for a fortnight).

Remember though, you have to PERSUADE them, not just TELL them. Shouting ‘Right Mum, I HATE poached eggs and you are not allowed to make them anymore,’ isn’t very persuasive is it?

Can you explain in a nice way why you dislike that kind of food?

Can you think of other (healthy) food you DO like that your family could have instead?

Are there any other kinds of food you would try instead of the food you dislike?

Write a short letter to your parent or carer trying to persuade them to ban a certain type of food for a fortnight. Will you be able to persuade them?
