Sisilia Argument.

1: lollies will make kids teeth rot, turn black and fall out. Brushing your teeth is really important so your teeth will not fall out. If your teeth rot you might need to wear fake teeth when you get older.

2: If children eat too much lollies they might get sick. They might also get a lumpy tongue.Their throats might get sore from eating and swallowing too.  

3: It has a lot of sugar in it and it will make your stomach hurt.
They might get sent to the doctor because of their eating too much lollies.

4: They can get you fat from eating heaps of lollies especially
chocolate. Lollies aren’t good for people because of the amount of sugar it has in it. Cut down on chocolate and lollies because it will make you bigger and its not healthy.

5: Lollies have too much sugar and it can make kids hyper and it will affect their behaviour and their skin. It might affect your taste buds and might cause disease. Don’t eat too much because another thing in your body might hurt too.

Kidney and Calories

Overweight people sometimes have a kidney fail and your whole body fails too. A kidney helps you to breath slowly and fast. Kidneys even help animals too  and helps them breathe slower when they run.

The kidney is a bean shaped fist sized organ.

Did you know that smoking can cause your kidneys problems as the smoke goes through the little long red and blue veins.

When the kidneys fail they start to lose blood. There can be kidney disease in you that you don't even know about and you might die any time.


calories is about how much fat there is in food.

A calorie is a unit of measurement — but it doesn't measure weight or length. A calorie is a unit of energy. When you hear something contains 100 calories, it's a way of describing how much energy your body could get from eating or drinking it.

calorie is a gram of sugar or how many things is in your food and drink. The calorie was first defined by Nicolas Clément in 1824 as a unit of heat.

What Is Really In Our Food: Eggs

Caged hens
New Zealanders eat 920,000,000 eggs per year.

Caged hens cages are on an angle so that the eggs can roll down onto a conveyor belt. Theres a lack of space in the cages for them to move around.

Hens can’t exercise because they live in a cage with 6 hens. They use electric wires so the hens won't escape and they won’t get their own eggs. They put color in their feed to make the yolk (yellow part) more lighter.

There is no nutritional difference  between white eggs and brown eggs. Cage eggs are more cheaper than free range or barn eggs. The protein in cooked eggs is better than raw. Unrefrigerated eggs can last up to 3 weeks.

barn hens

Free range chickens lay their eggs in a shed but they are free to run around outside. Cooked eggs have protein  and it is better than raw . Free range eggs cost more than cage eggs.

Free range eggs can run around outside and dust path there feathers. Some chickens feathers come off and when the chickens feathers grow they can lay eggs again. free range chickens eggs yolk have dark orange. feed chickens  have more color in there yolk.  

All cage free are all fresh but not the same. chickens eta mix grain and grass. Dark yolk haves more flavour. Free range eggs are definitely a better choice. Free range eggs are so good for you there not only  nutritious but you can feel good about where eggs came from.

Holiday Highlight.

Guess what? my Auntie came over for the Holidays.

On Monday afternoon my Aunt came over for the holidays. She came with my  three cousin’s Angelina, Ane and a little baby boy. As she came inside we helped with her carrie luggages to the spare room. We started playing and talking then it was nearly lunch time so my auntie wanted to make something for us. She told us to get bowls and cooking things out. She was going to bake circles cakes for us to eat for lunch. She told us to help her cook so she told us  get baking powder, butter,milk, bowl, big spoon, sugar, egg, and water.

So as we got the bowl my auntie told me to get the bowl so she can put the ingredients inside. So first she poured in the bag of flour and she put to eggs inside and then she put in lots of sugar.Then she told me to tipp the water into the bowl and mixed it. It was hard to mix so I told my auntie to mix it for me then it got soft and I gave Sesalina to have a turn mixing. Then she told us to clean the big bot so we can make it. So after I cleaned it I dried it up and gave to Auntie Ana.

Auntie Ana Told my dad to go to the indian shop and get oil. It was a different oil and it was in a large bag when they bought it. Then my dad came and gave the oil to us and we tipped it in the big bot.Then we started rolling up the dow and we put it in the bott when the oil was melting. Then we put lots of the dow in and we turned it around and it was brown and it smell like butter in the kitchen.While it was cooking we started making hot chocolate for us to eat with.

Sesalina made it in a teapot and she poured in the drinking chocolate and milk. Then we went to check if it was cooked then we put it on a big bowl and we cooked some more.  Then we ate it after we finished cooking lots of cake. It was yummy and delicious .

It was cool then after two weeks she went  back to her house. It was cool playing with Angelina and Ane and luckily it was a sunny day.
