A Healthy Diet and Our Body Year 8 Science : If our bodies are human machines food is our fuel. How well we eat, affects how well our bodies work, and how long we live. It is especially important that we eat heathily as children, as we are still growing and developing; a young plant not given proper nutrients grows up to be a poor specimen. A healthy diet is sometimes called a balanced diet as it needs to consist of different types of foods. Eating properly and regularly is really important; what we eat and drink now, affects our health in the future. Foodie fact Children who eat breakfast get better scores in tests than children that dont!

The Main Food Groups
Fruit and Vegetables Fruits and vegetables grow on plants: underground, on the ground or in trees. Every day we should eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables. (A portion is about a handful.) Fruit and vegetables give us fibre and vitamins and minerals. Take 5 a day everyday!
Grains and Pulses This food group includes wheat, corn, barley, rice, lentils, beans etc. These are all from plants and form a staple part of the diet for people all over the world. Grains and pulses give us carbohydrates and proteins. Nuts are another source of protein. What is..? Rice is the staple food in China and much of the East. What is it in the West (UK, USA)?
Dairy Products Dairy foods are made from milk (usually cows milk, but can be from other animals like goats or sheep). Dairy foods give us proteins and fats. They are also a good source of calcium which is good for bones and teeth. These foods include: Cheese (hard, soft, cottage); Yogurt; Food high in milk or milk products. Weird fact Our brains are 80% fat.
Meat, Fish and Eggs The main nutrients derived from meat are proteins, but it also gives us fats and some minerals. The meat and fish group includes: Chicken and all poultry; Fish and shellfish; Beef, pork and lamb. Eggs are included in this group too. Athletes eat lots of protein; they help to build muscles. Foodie fact Sushi (raw fish) is now Marks and Spencers best-selling lunchtime snack.
Vitamins and Minerals Our bodies need all sorts of chemicals (vitamins and minerals) to be healthy. The most common are: Vitamin AHelps maintain eyesight Sweet potatoes, carrots Vitamin BHelp body make protein Green leafy vegetables Vitamin CHealing skin, preventing colds Citrus fruit, tomatoes Vitamin DStrengthen bones Milk Sunlight Vitamin EHelps strengthen cells Vegetable oils, nuts IronHealthy bloodGreen leafy vegetables
Reading the Labels on Foods Food labelling is confusing. The front of packaging often tells a different story to the back. Products that claim to be Low in fat on the front, may be loaded with sugar, and sometimes, products saying things like Less than 5% fat have more fat tha similar products! Food label You cannot trust the front of the pack – you need to read the back !
This is what we found that babies thought of healthy foods :
Healthy Eating Myths Year 10 Food Technology :
Healthy Eating Myths It doesnt matter what I eat as long as I do lots of exercise.
Healthy Eating Myths It doesnt matter what I eat as long as I do lots of exercise. Wrong! Exercise is good for you, but it still matters what you eat. Eating the right foods means we can learn better and exercise better too!
Healthy Eating Myths Chocolate is bad for you!
Healthy Eating Myths Chocolate is bad for you! Its true that chocolate isnt the healthiest snack – but it isnt innately bad either! So, some chocolate can be part of a balanced diet. Plain (dark) chocolate is better for you thank milk; it is higher in iron.
Healthy Eating Myths Chewing and digesting a stick of celery uses up more energy than you get from the food.
Healthy Eating Myths Chewing and digesting a stick of celery uses up more energy than you get from the food. This sounds good, but unfortunately it isnt true!
Waste not, want not Wasted food in the world 2013 Project work presented by : Rebecca Hardy Isobel McLeod Ellie Oberstein Esther Townsend Freeganism Year 11 RPS Food recycling recipes Year 9 Food Best Before dates Year 10 Business
The wasted food (kilograms per inhabitant) in different parts of the world. WORLD FOOD WASTE : Assembly Presentation September 2013
Food waste in the production chain
Which types of food are wasted ?
Food waste has an impact on environmental, social and economic levels 7.2 million tonnes of food are thrown away anually in the UK 841 million £ are spent on buying this wasted food CONSEQUENCES This could feed 500,000 people in the developing world
Do I really waste food? We all do… but few of us are aware of this and fewer still accept it!
Year 11 Religious & Personal Studies : Freeganism WHY do they do that? They want to show us that there is an alternative lifestyle WHAT is it? They live on food which has been disposed of WHERE did it start? New York City : centerpiece of his movement. The UK, Switzerland, Spain, Brazil, Argentina and Korea. ENVIRONMENTALISM Objectives: Conserve, re-use, prevent abuse of the environment CAMPAIGNS There are campaigns that support them EAT BY DATE: This is the last date on which the holder of the option may exercise it according to its terms. BEST BEFORE DATE: This Is about quality, not safety. When the date is passed, it doesn't mean that the food will be harmful, but it might begin to lose its flavour and texture Freeganism is a movement which started in developed societies as an alternative to use capitalist system
Food hunt challenge Market Day is over Free Feast
Year 9 Food Technology : Recipies for leftovers ! Food recycling What is food recycling? You recycle food when you use leftovers from a dish and cook them into new dishes. We looked for some traditional recipes to cook a new dish from waste. We also looked at food safety, and making sure that food is suitable for recycling
9A : Why recycle food ?9B : Where can we get it from ? 9C: Food Groups9D : My recycled dinner !
Year 10 Business Studies : date stamping food The robot fridge always places the food with the closest expiration date in the front. It has a glass front so you get an overview without opening the door. The robot arm inside the fridge takes your stuff for you and dispenses it in order to keep the door closed, saving energy.
