Healthy eating

This section provides activity ideas and resources to strengthen learning around eating well, energy and nutrients, diet and health, nutrition labelling, digestion and activity.

The key learning objectives are:

  • When choosing food and drinks, current healthy eating guidelines should be followed;
  • Food and drinks provide energy and nutrients in different amounts, they have important functions in the body and people require different amounts during their life;
  • There are health issues related to dietary excess or deficiency;
  • Nutrition and allergy information on food labels help to make informed food and drink choices;
  • Digestion involves different parts of the body, each having an important role;
  • It is important to include a variety of different activity in everyday living, supporting physical, social and mental wellbeing.

This section builds on the learning from the 7-11 years area. For further rigour and challenge, go to the 14-16 years area (coming soon).
