Feeding Minds

Have you explored Food Standards Scotland’s (FSS) “Feeding Minds”, our online Education Resources, developed to support teachers with food and health lessons in the classroom from nursery to primary to early secondary?


There are many food safety and healthy eating activities to choose from, which you can filter by level or topics, ranging from fun interactives, quizzes, food card games and worksheets which will engage your class and help them learn these important life lessons.  Each activity is set out in a lesson plan style to save teachers’ time – and includes CfE-links, learning outcomes, cross curricular links as well as helpful background notes on each topic.

New information from Education Scotland today:
