Due: Wednesday 18th November
Comment on the following areas, discussing what you have learned during the Healthy Living and Eating unit, taking into consideration your Health Diaries that you completed.
What have you considered about:
The issues behind personal choices regarding healthy eating and healthy living. (i.e. do you feel healthy eating, sleeping patterns, water and sugar intake are important, and if so, why? Is there a more important one of the above, or are they all important?)
The concepts of the ‘Eatwell Plate’ and the ‘Traffic Light’ system? (are these useful tools to help prompt people about their diets / food choices?)
The long term consequences of poor diet on young people. (Are you at risk long term? What does a poor diet / lifestyle lead to?)
The social (society/people) and economic (money/financial) consequences of poor eating choices for individuals and society. (What occurs if we eat badly all the time – not just ourselves, but society and our economy?)
Attitudes towards healthy eating. (How have these changed for you? What will you, or have you changed?)
Student Voice (give me your feedback): Do you think that this unit is an important one to study? Has it prompted you to change your lifestyle in any way? Is there anything you think we should have covered – perhaps in more depth?
The impact on advertising on personal eating habits. (Is the advertising industry partly to blame?)
