About this event

Nutrition School

This is one of two presentations in November (One for cardiovascular health and the other for children’s healthy eating)

		Nutrition School Presentation 1: Diet for  Heart Health image

Diet for Heart Health.

This is a one-hour presentation, with live Q&A by a professional nutritionist.

  • Capacity for 100 teachers and their classes to join us live from the classroom (Students can only join through their teacher)
  • Recorded so that ANY class can catch up at any time, reaching 30,000 students

NB: If demand exceeds 100, we will arrange for this to be broadcast through an additional platform such as You Tube so that as many as possible can join us.

We hope that this helps Y11 by:

  • Giving them the opportunity for more engaging primary and secondary research,
  • Providing accessible, relevant, and up to date information,
  • Clarifying and exploring cardiovascular health issues to bring assessment to life
  • Encouraging them to apply what they find out to the choice of appropriate dishes, thus improving their marks.

We encourage your students to prepare questions in advance, and submit them to us, as there will be a substantial Q&A section.


  1. What is a Nutritionist? (5 mins)
  2. Diets for Heart Health (15 mins)
  3. Q&A (30 mins)
  4. Summing up – important areas to consider (5 mins)

    Other great features

    Whilst this presentation is aimed at Y11 students, we are happy for Y10, or other exam courses such as Health and Social Care, Y12-13 Food Science and Nutrition to join as well (if there is capacity) or make use of the recording.

    You can also use this video to support options evenings. It will bring to life the work on professional nutritionists and showcase many interesting career opportunities and pathways available.

    This event has been made possible by kind donations from the Food Teachers Centre group, but we welcome further donations so that we can host more events such as these.

    Organiser Food Teachers Centre (Founder Louise Davies)

    Organiser of Nutrition School Presentation 1: Diet for Heart Health

    FOOD TEACHERS CENTRE is a uk based self-help group founded by Louise T Davies in 2013 and supported by experienced associates. It provides a platform to exchange best practice, give advice and support to less experienced teachers, answering practical concerns and keeping them abreast of the latest curriculum changes. A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff.

    The idea of a 'Teacher's Centre' is a response to the lack of local and national specialist support and diminishing Continuing Professional Development with the demise of local authority advisers ASTs, lead practitioners and supporting organisations.

    The Centre utilises new technologies, not requiring a physical space in new times, but providing the same high quality service that our traditional teachers centres were recognised for.

     The Food Teachers Centre is a place of

    • creative, innovative ideas and action
    • practical solutions
    • learning and sharing

    If you would like to join the closed facebook group (you have to be a secondary food teacher and answer the THREE entry questions full))

    But you can also visit our website   and public facebook page



    The centre is supported by a group of very experienced and high quality national and regional consultants/advisers, who offer training, advice and resource writing for food education in primary and secondary schools. Find out more about how Associates can help you.


    Food Teacher's Centre Community is a community group set up to:

    • provide and promote unbiased and accurate information to support curriculum development and innovation.
    • support food teachers (including student teachers) to exchange best practice nationally and internationally.
    • support teachers and schools to develop and/or enhance a healthy living whole school community.

    Food Teachers Centre Communityis a Community Association suported by donations.  Treasurer Mrs B Rathmill and Seceretary Mrs J Elms.   More information
