This resource pack includes a series of interactive whiteboard screens providing pupils with basic nutritional information related to healthy eating. The screens require pupils to look carefully at the facts and discuss the information with their teacher and peers.

They encourage pupils to apply their knowledge to sort and classify foods into healthy and non-healthy groups and to use a variety of data handling techniques. A series of worksheets support and extend the lesson.
