Our education resources are here to support teachers across Scotland to deliver the food and health parts of Curriculum for Excellence and the key principles of healthy eating and food safety.
The 26 activities were designed by FSS experts and teachers, and cover topics on food groups, food storage and allergies to food safety, labelling, hand washing and much more.
Our activities are easy to use and are designed to boost engagement in your class by using fun interactives, food cards and worksheets. All topics have teacher's notes to use as reference:
The activities can be searched for using the filters:
- Age & Stage: Nursery, P1-3, P3-5, P5-7, S1-3
- Subject areas: Nutrition,Safe and hygienic practices, Food and the consumer
- CfE Experiences and Outcomes
Links are made from the resources to many Health and Wellbeing Experiences and Outcomess in the early, first, second, third and fourth levels of the CfE. As well as Food and Health, there are other cross-curricular links made including for Literacy, Numeracy, Technology, and Expressive Arts, making them relevant to many other subject areas.
A Homelink activity or idea is often given that can be used to encourage pupils to share their learning with their parents/carers at home.
We hope you use these resources as your 'go to' for food and health learning. If you have any feedback or suggestions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Order food cards
Our food cards are a great resource in their own right - they describe 134 foods in terms of Healthy Eating, Food Safety, Shopping and Cooking, using both images and text. You will also need them for some of our activities, they can be ordered by contacting us at email@example.com.
The cards can also be downloaded and printed (please print single-sided):
Healthy Eating Tutorial
If you are teaching about healthy eating but have no background in nutrition the Healthy Eating Tutorial could be for you - by the end of the tutorial, you’ll know what a healthy diet looks like, why it’s important, and what help is available to achieve it. There is also an optional assessment module and provided you pass you will receive a certificate.
