Secondary school packs
Two educational resources designed to help teachers to get their students thinking about food additives, about processed foods and about how food policy is made.
The packs are particularly useful for lessons on Citizenship or Food Technology and could be adapted to suit different year groups. The student pack includes an independent research exercise in which students are required to explore the issue of food additives and hyperactivity from the perspective of different stakeholders.
