Food Technology and Science

This resource pack "Fit Food" provides an opportunity to link learning in science and food technology, so that consistent messages are given to pupils and pupils are able to apply what they have learned in science in a practical context (when they choose meals or make food products). This should lead to change in behaviour, because they are doing rather than merely ‘knowing about’. This approach uses the strengths of both science and food technology. Food often provides a motivating and lively context to learn about science, but teachers need to be shown how learning should link together simply, without a great deal of extra work on the part of teachers. It may also raise attainment in both GCSEs. It will help both Science and Food technology teachers update their understanding and practice when teaching nutrition.
