Sweet Tooth


Dear Students

Most of you are not addicted to sweets. But, each one of you, probably has a favourite sweet or two that you cannot resist – chocolate, gulab jamun, ice-cream, ras-malai…

Do watch this informative lesson on what happens when you eat sweets too frequently:

You also love snacking, especially when exams approach. In between studying, you love to munch on a tasty snack.

Here is the recipe for a homemade snack that you can make and store at home – and, unlike in shop products, you can control the amounts of fat and sugar used. Biscuit making/stocking can be part of your exam preparations!

I dedicate this video to all my students who periodically queue up outside my office with tasty snacks (prepared by them as “scientific experiments”), force-feed me, and then leave my desk all sticky with their ingredients!


I especially like this Master Chef‘s style of commentary, don’t you?

Note: Please do not cook in the kitchen without adult supervision. Knives and fire can be dangerous.

  1. Craving for sweets can be controlled easily once we know what triggers the craving (and have a little bit of self control). Thank You for such a sugary bit(e) of information! Those Atta Biscuits might be yummy too (I will give it a try!).

    • Alema, see my explanation in comments – and ask your science teacher to explain the meaning of neurotransmitter, dopamine, how these function in the brain, and the effect of sugar on the brain.

  5. Mam, this one is very,very…….. ……………………………………………………………………………….interesting
    But I understood only the half of it , the other half was like a bouncer

    • Read my reply to Aneesh’s comment. Neurotransmitter is a chemical like a messenger, that sends signals to the brain, telling you what to think/feel, and how to respond. Sugar being digested releases dopamine, a neurotransmitter, that makes you feel happy. Ask your science teacher to explain the rest to you.

  7. ha ha we recently did the receptor and sensory nerves etc. makes it even clear!
    The video gives a good idea that sugar is good only till the body requires it..
    Did not completely understand the dopamine concept but yes i got a nack of it 🙂

    • Dopamine is a hormone and neuro-transmitter present in the body, that is released by several factors, one of which is sugar consumption. Dopamine sends a “feel-good” signal to the brain. That is why, eating sweets, cocos, candy makes us feel rewarded/happy. But too much sugar, due to this happy feeling, leads to addiction. Sugar and drugs both release dopamine, and are hence addictive. Each time, the body needs more sugar to feel “high” or happy. You know how increased sugar in the blood leads to insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes, obesity, etc.? Therefore, eat sugar, but not too much!
