A fun way for students to engage with food technology from home in an online setting!
This resource was developed to assist students working from home to create a 7-day meal plan to help their family eat a healthy balanced diet that is nutrient rich. Students complete the blank personal profile sheets to record important information on all the people they are catering for in their meal plans. They are prompted to include age, gender, life cycle stage, activity needs, dietary requirements (allergies/intolerances), dietary disorders and any other general information that is helpful in explaining who the people they are catering for are.
Students then complete the daily meal plans for a seven-day period, providing a variety of foods to maintain a healthy balanced diet. After completing the personal profiles and meal plans students then complete the justification worksheet and the student self-evaluation. This resource aims to meet the needs of students from a multitude of abilities and it is to be differentiated at the teacher’s discretion. This resource was designed to be used across a number of stages, NSW syllabi and the Australian Curriculum where appropriate. This resource can be used digitally or physically with students.
