FOOD

As part of their work with food in Key Stage 3, students should be taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. Learning how to cook is a crucial life skill that enables pupils to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and in later life. Students should be taught to:

  • understand and apply the principles of nutrition and health
  • cook a repertoire of predominantly savoury dishes so that they are able to feed themselves and others and enjoy a healthy and varied diet
  • become competent in a range of cooking techniques (for example, selecting and preparing ingredients, using utensils and electrical equipment, applying heat in different ways; using awareness of taste, texture and smell to decide how to season dishes and combine ingredients, and adapting and using their own recipes
  • understand the source, seasonality and characteristics of a broad range of ingredients.
