Food and Nutrition - NCEA Level 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Thomas

In Food & Nutrition, Level 2 students develop an understanding of the factors that influence the well-being of individuals and families within the home and community and of the actions people take to enhance and sustain those environments.
In the context of food and nutrition, students evaluate and research current issues and theories of nutrition, identify and reflect on factors that influence people's choices and behaviours and use this knowledge to make informed decisions. Students continue to develop their practical skills and knowledge by creating a range of healthy and nutritious dishes. Interesting and relevant theory work will be as important as the weekly practical component.




The following areas of study will be covered in this course:
Evaluate sustainable food related practices
Analyse beliefs attitudes and practices related to a nutritional issue for families in New Zealand
Analyse issues related to the provision of food for people with specific food needs
Analyse the relationship between well-being, food choices and determinants of health

Course Overview

Term 1
Students will be learning about various sustainable practices related to food production and preservation. During the term they will be researching a sustainable practice of their own choosing and will explore the merits of this practice with special emphasis on the implications that this practice has on the environment, economic considerations and social interactions with others. The assessment task comprises a fully-research report that uses APA referencing and provides a detailed evaluation of their chosen sustainable practice in order to achieve 5 NCEA Level Two credits for Achievement Standard 91302: Evaluate sustainable food related practices.

Re-submission opportunities: students may have the opportunity to resubmit work in consultation with classroom teacher and/or Head of Department. Extensions may only be applied for in writing a week before the due date in extenuating circumstances in consultation with the Leader of Learning (Head of Department).

Term 2
Students will be learning about various nutritional issues facing New Zealanders today and their possible causes. During the term they will be researching a sustainable practice of their own choosing and will explore the effects of this nutritional issue with special emphasis on beliefs, attitudes and practices we may have developed around our relationship with food. The assessment task comprises a fully-research report that uses APA referencing and provides a detailed analysis of their chosen nutritional issue in order to achieve 5 NCEA Level Two credits for Achievement Standard 91301: Analyse beliefs attitudes and practices related to a nutritional issue for families in New Zealand.

Re-submission opportunities: students may have the opportunity to resubmit work in consultation with classroom teacher and/or Head of Department.
