“Simple cooking is a fundamental skill that every person should master – it is at the heart of tackling obesity and will enable future generations to understand food, diet and nutrition, and put together healthy meals for their entire lives."
Students will need to provide their own ingredients for Food and Nutrition lessons and the scheme of learning has been designed to minimise the cost of this. There will be recipe options for students and families who have particular dietary requirements. An apron is also required for practical work.
Offering Food and Nutrition lessons throughout years 7 and 8 ensures that all our students receive a solid foundation in nutrition, hygiene and food preparation skills to enable them to make healthy, informed food choices.
Schemes of learning have been carefully designed to enable students to develop in to healthy, food conscious young adults who are able to make good decisions about the food and drinks they consume.
