The National Curriculum
Food and nutrition teaching throughout the UK

The national curriculum for England is taught in all local authority-maintained schools. The curriculum supports Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 (primary and secondary education, 5-14 years).

Food is mainly taught through:

  • Design and technology: Cooking and nutrition;
  • Science;
  • Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE).

Physical education also plays an important part in pupil health and wellbeing.
