Finding Water in Food
Our bodies need lots of water every day to stay healthy. We drink water, but did you know that we also eat water? Try this experiment and you can see the water in our food.

You will need:
Plastic Bag
Different foods
A plastic bag
A plate

Finding the water:

  1. Have an adult slice two pieces of each of the foods you choose. Make sure they're about the same size.
  2. Lay one of the slices of each food on a plate without a cover.
  3. Put the other slice of each food in a plastic bag.
  4. Compare the foods after one day and after two days.
Making discoveries:
  • How are they different?
  • What do you think happened?
  • Which food do you think has the most water in it?
  • Why?
