Brian Jackson College Healthy Eating

The pupils at Brian Jackson College, Heckmondwike had planned and budgeted a meal (in pairs)  that they were going to cook as part of their Healthy Living module for the new course – Employability Level 1 qualification.


Part of the work, not only included planning and looking at recipes of a balanced diet (they had previously studied healthy food plates and designed one of their own) but also walking to the supermarket and back and reflecting on their experience and mood whilst doing so.


They then had to work collaboratively and decide who was cooking which course and how to do it.


The pupils had to measure the ingredients and time how long they should for. They made everything from scratch including bread, sauces and sides.


They then plated the food up to look presentable in authentic dishes.
