Minimise or Supersize
In this resource from Cre8ate maths, students critically compare nutritional measures and calculate their daily energy requirements.
Initially students fill in the worksheet Can we eat what we like, to prompt a whole class discussion about the consequences of a bad diet. They then use the Sugar, salt and fat worksheet, to explore their perceptions of the amounts of these ingredients in a selection of everyday foods.
In Calculating Energy Requirements, pupils use a scientific formula and the Energy requirements fact card, to estimate their energy requirements and compare these to the guidelines for themselves or someone they know.
Working as a Nutritionist requires students to take on the role of a nutritionist and plan suitable lunchtime meals for a family member, a celebrity or a sports person
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
