This project looks at the kinds of food we enjoy eating, whether everyday food or on special occasions. Teenagers enjoy cooking their own food - but do you know how healthy your favourite recipe REALLY is?

My favourite meal!

For our first activity we each describe out favourite meal. We share information about the recipe, the kinds of ingredients in the meal, and a bit about why we like this meal so much. Each class will take a photo of a particularly enjoyable meal during the week. Post the picture here, so that we can see your favourite dish! Write a description of the meal, and tell us what ingredients are in it. This activity is designed to take place over a week.

So good!

In the second activity, each class talks about their favourite meals and discusses why the meal is healthy or not so healthy. You might want to talk about what amounts of protein, carbohydrate, sugars and fats a teenager should eat. Put your results onto this site as a written description or perhaps as a short video, if you've got access to a digital camera. This activity is designed to take place over a fortnight

What do you think?

Time for you to tell us what you think about healthy eating. We'll keep this poll open for a fortnight to give time for people to consider their ideas about healthy food.
