Food counter

Our resources in this section will help support you when teaching your Key Stage 3/third and fourth level students Nutrition and digestion.

Help your class find out how your body turns the food on your plate into simple molecules it can actually use through digestion, and get your students to learn about digestive stages by acting them out.

They can explore what micronutrients are and why we need them in our diet, what causes food cravings and how, by lacking just one digestive enzyme, people can become lactose intolerant.
