Diet Related Disorder Diagnosis is a fun way for students to learn about the nutrients that cause diet related disorders and their symptoms.
This resource has been designed to cater for Year 12 Food Technology students studying Contemporary Nutrition Issues. This resource includes a range of activities that you can use to familiarise students with the relationship between nutrient intake and diet related disorders.
Students work through the PowerPoint where they can revise 12 diet related disorders that result from under and over nutrition. They will then be given a chance to ‘diagnose’ diet related disorders based on 12 scenarios included in the PowerPoint. The first activity and worksheet has been included in this resource pack to allow students to make notes on each of the diet related disorders and determine which nutrients the ‘patients’ are lacking or consuming too much of.
The second activity and worksheet allows students to plan a nutritionally appropriate meal for a person from the scenarios. Students are given a scenario card and then tasked to work collaboratively to create a meal to help their person better manage their diet related disorder.
The third activity and worksheet allows students to practise their extended responses ahead of the HSC with the describe scaffold.
These activities can be used in a variety of ways to best meet the needs of your students and save you time planning new resources and activities.
