Gravity plays a huge part in how we interact with our world from sleeping to eating to exercise. We’re taking a look at how astronauts have to prepare food by creating space food and the packaging that goes with it!
Let’s start by thinking about some questions.
How is gravity different in Earth than in space?
How do you think food is different for astronauts?

Time for the pudding directions!
Gather your materials: dry pudding mix, non-dairy coffee creamer, Ziploc bag, and cold water.
Combine 1 tbsp pudding mix and ½ tbs coffee creamer in your Ziploc bag.
When ready to consume, slowly add cold water (3 tbs worked for us). Seal the baggie (and inspect for leaks!).
Shake until contents are thoroughly combined.
Cut a corner out of our bags and squeezed the pudding out. Alternatively, use a straw or spoon.
