FTE8

Food and Nutrition - NCEA Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Thomas

In Food and Nutrition students develop an understanding of the factors that influence the well-being of individuals and families within their 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 food related ethical dilemmas for New Zealand society and investigate multinational corporations and how they influence the food choices consumers make in New Zealand.  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.

This is an approved subject for University Entrance.
