About This PDF

Each downloadable PDF resource in the Instant Lessons series is a collection of fresh and versatile work sheet activities which may be printed for student use. They are unique in providing the highest learning outcomes with instant usability.

This title has been written to assist Years 7–10 Technology and Food Technology teachers to develop lessons about food for special needs and special occasions. Work sheets look at planning meals for different members of the family and for people with food intolerances, allergies and other special dietary needs. Students also plan menus and work schedules for special events and explore cultural considerations. Each double-page unit of work is an ideal supplement for a regular lesson, suitable for homework or revision, or can be left for a class when the regular teacher is absent.

Activity types include cloze tasks, completing tables, assessing the suitability of foods and reading and analysing food labels. Some activities require access to the Internet or a library to complete research tasks.

Topics Include:

  • Circumstances leading to special food needs
  • Supporting people with special food needs
  • Planning and preparing special foods 
  • Historical and cultural influences on food
  • Food for special occasions
  • Menu planning for special occasions
