Course Description

Teacher in Charge: L. Valli

Year 9 Food and Nutrition at Whangarei Girls’ High School is an equal mix of theory and practical cooking classes. This course focuses on nutrition for teenagers and teaches them how to read and understand nutritional information on food packaging. Practical lessons teach students important skills to be able to prepare a range of innovative and creative dishes. They are designed to develop students confidence and we encourage them to try them out at home. All of the dishes are supercharged with nutrients and will help to boost and maintain students’ energy levels.
