Why study Food and Nutrition?
Nutrition is fundamental to developing a sense of well-being. The ability to effectively look after ourselves and our whānau and community is a necessary life skill. Information about nutrition and healthy eating can be conflicting and confusing in our society today. This course is based on the major focus of Food and Nutrition (Home Economics) and aims to empower students with the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to critically analyse the food and nutrition messages that abound, and make good decisions for themselves and others regarding food choice.
Assessments are based on the Health Curriculum objectives.

All Internal Assessment tasks are written reports.
$40.00 for pantry ingredients and provisions which the school supplies. Each student is also required to contribute the perishable ingredients for practical lessons. Stationary is an additional cost (although minimal).
