Challenge activities

Challenges to support teaching and learning around Healthy eating, Cooking and Where food comes from.

The Food – a fact of life Challenge activities have been written to support teachers not following the national curriculum for their specific country or those following a challenge or theme-based approach. However, they could be used in any school across the UK.

The Challenges cover healthy eating, cooking and where food comes from and provide a wide range of activities that teachers can select depending on their pupils’ needs, age and abilities, and the time available.

There are 12 Challenges developed to be used with nursery, primary or secondary pupils.

Each Challenge presentation comprises:

  • slides to present the Challenge to the class, including images, information and questions/tasks to stimulate pupil discussion and planning;
  • a teachers' guide with opportunities for learning and a variety of pupil activities that can be completed individually or in groups.

The Challenges culminate in a final outcome, which could be paper based, such as a poster or display, a video or interactive activity, a recipe, menu or dish/range of dishes, depending on the theme of the Challenge.

Optional pupil certificates are available to download and personalise once the Challenge has been achieved.

Challenges are also available for 3-5 years, 5-7 years and 7-11 years, and 11-14 years
