Do your students have difficulty understanding the nutrient requirements for various groups within the life cycle? Do they struggle to interpret nutritional information panels?

This resource includes student-friendly activity sheets for years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. Each nutrition panel decoder explains how to understand nutritional information panels in a simple manner. The nutritional panel decoder is suitable for secondary students and presents a clear visual structure that increases engagement and learning in the classroom.

Nutritional information panels outline the components of processed food and if students can understand the tables with clarity, they can make more informed choices. Understanding and accessing nutritional panels are also imperative to Food Technology content throughout Stage 4, 5 and 6.
