Bring back Home Economics into school says 2littlefeet.
If life skills are not taught then how can children learn them?
A simple description of the daily school lunch and its contents would be a good starting point. Food and healthy eating should also have more weight, pardon the pun, in biology and the practical applications could be introduced in chemistry and physics. A whole syllabus approach should be introduced to both eating well and finance so that budgeting skills are also improved. The cost of running an oven for 2 fish fingers, microwave peas vs boiling on a hob etc .
Supermarkets could also market their food products through a nutrition program for the nation. Let’s face it, Recipe cards are a bit old hat, in the digital age the scope to make a real impact with new marketing tools to help customers choose well nutritionally and financially must be worth its weight in weekly carrot tonnage if not pure gold carats!
