    A good starting point for my low ability group

    Had to heavily edit - some real confusion between food groups and nutrients. I don't recommend downloading and using without checking!

    A more up to date version would focus on the five food groups of the healthy eating plate - fruit and vegetables, carbohydrates, fats, proteins and dairy foods. This helps pupils to see how they can access the nutrients in their daily diets. We use this in food technology. I would also include the governments eight guidelines to a healthier diet.
