With the introduction of new food, cooking and nutrition aspects of the National Curriculum in England (September 2014), BNF has developed a range of support materials and training opportunities for schools to help with implementation.

The resources help schools unpack the slim-line curriculum (looking at progression, challenge and attainment), plan Schemes of Work and implement high quality food, cooking and nutrition teaching via new resources.

To support BNF has:

  • devising a food, cooking and nutrition progression framework, in partnership with others - this is known as the Core Competences;
  • creating non-statutory guidance, specifically Schemes of Work for Year Groups 1 to 9, including individual lesson plans for all years;
  • run a series of national training events (all the training materials are available to download here - primary and secondary);
  • run a series of online training sessions - for the recordings, click here.
To support teachers, the Scheme of Work for Years 1 to 9 have been produced. These Schemes of Work are being provided as exemplar materials only - they are intended to provide guidance for schools to develop their own specific lessons, supporting pupil learning.

You may also be interested in reviewing the 16 cooking lessons (from Licence to Cook), along with a range of cooking videos, as well as a free online nutritional analysis tool Explore Food.

The Schemes of Work, national training events and online training have been deveoped, written and presented by the British Nutrition Foundation, with the support from its members and other national organisations. Click here for further details.
