Food&ME™ provides teachers with an evidence-based, curriculum linked nutrition education resource for teaching nutrition in the classroom from Preschool to Year 5 & 6.
The Food&ME™ nutrition education units were developed by Accredited Practising Dietitians from Nutrition Australia ACT, in consultation with teachers from various ACT schools. Each unit has been pilot tested in different classroom settings to ensure the content meets student’s requirements and suits a range of teaching styles.
Each Food&ME™ nutrition education unit is linked to the Australian Curriculum and aligns with the Australian Dietary Guidelines. Food&ME™ resources support schools to deliver the Classroom Learning action area of Fresh Tastes.
Food&ME™ is made up five units:
- Years 1 & 2
- Years 3 & 4
- Years 5 & 6
Food&ME™ nutrition education units can be downloaded for free via the Good Habits for Life website.
