Food Standards Scotland is proud to have launched the new Interactive Eatwell Guide today. This teaching resource is designed to show the balance of food groups required for a healthy diet. We would be delighted if you would be one of the first to use and share this resource with your peers.
The tool makes learning about a healthy diet simple, fun and accessible. We would also like to invite you to share the resource through your social media channels if possible. Below you will find some suggested social media content, and attached to this email is a still form of the resource which you can use to add a visual element to your posts too. Thank you in advance for your support.
The Interactive Eatwell Guide
Use our interactive Eatwell Guide tool to teach your class how to get a balance of healthier and more sustainable food. It will help you teach about the different food groups and the proportions of each one we should all be eating, in a fun and interactive way, and at the same time will deliver Curriculum for Excellence Experiences and Outcomes. There is more information on the food groups within the resource.
Please note: this resource is designed primarily for use in a classroom environment and will work best on Smart Boards and iPads. It also works on desktops and laptops but please ensure that your screen is set to full screen (go to View and Full Screen).
The Eatwell Guide now replaces the eatwell plate as the main tool showing you a healthy balanced diet. It shows the proportions of the foods that make up a healthy diet. The proportions of food groups have been updated to take into account the new dietary recommendations for more fibre and less sugar.
