Lifestyle, culture and religion

Below you will find a number of resources to support teaching and learning about how lifestyle, culture and religion affect a person's food choices.

When learning about religion and food choice, it is important not to assume an individual’s dietary practices just because they belong to a particular faith or religious group. Dietary practices between and within different groups can be quite diverse and it’s important to find out each individual’s dietary needs.

The resources are suitable for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 - please use your professional judgement and knowledge of your students to choose the most appropriate resources.

Why not also try our new online quizzes on Kahoot, a game-based learning platform, which correspond to each of the lectures. The link with instructions on how to play can be found at the end of each PowerPoint or below. For further support using Kahoot, take a look at our kahoot user guide.
