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 in the toolkit?

  • 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

Just a quick note that my faculty is using the resources purchased from PG Online with great success; we're receiving great feedback from students and staff alike. Thank you.

Our year 8 girls really enjoyed the Python Unit and even complained when we moved on to another topic.
