Principles of nutrition and health

Understand how to develop a diet to maintain good health


Summary - Out now

Understanding basic dietary requirements and what constitutes a healthy meal is at the core of this discrete unit. It has been designed so that it can be delivered in a regular non-specialist classroom, however if access to specialist facilities is available it will complement their use too. The lessons balance current thinking from NHS recommendations with inspiring and occasionally shocking statistics that provide a factual basis for understanding our nutritional needs. Delivered as a fun series of tasks and challenges students will be better informed to make personal dietary choices.

What's included

The currently available units have been written to satisfy the new National Curriculum for Design and Technology. They are designed for teaching at KS3 but individual lessons in some units may also be appropriate for teaching Key Stages 2 or 4, particularly where Year 10 students may not previously have been exposed to certain topics.

  • PowerPoint slides for each lesson
  • Detailed lesson plans
  • Learning objectives and outcomes
  • Statement of which of the Government Guidelines are covered in the unit
  • Worksheets and activities
  • End-of-unit Assessment material
  • Other material and links to online resources

What people say...

The Python book has been the most absorbable and easily followed guide to Tkinter I’ve come across.
