There were 5.5 million exams taken altogether and Food and Nutrition was taken by 0.9% of total.
The charts below show the results for male, female and total and the % for grades 7 , 4 and 1. The chart shows disappointing results for boys – only 50% got grade 4-7 so this needs looking at and maybe get evaluation on results in NEA 1, 2 and written exam.
Home Economics GCSE plods on with only 3528 candidates. Reading newspaper reports of results, we are not doing enough to get any mention of Food and Nutrition in the newspapers – this could lead to extinction!!
Type 2 diabetes is a common condition that causes the level of sugar in the blood to become too high.
It’s often linked to being overweight or inactive, or having a family history of type 2 diabetes. This NHS website has good information.
A healthy diet and keeping active helps people with diabetes manage their blood sugar level.
This is the diet advice from NHS website
There’s nothing people with type 2 diabetes cannot eat but they have to limit certain foods. They should:
eat a wide range of foods – including fruit, vegetables and some starchy foods like pasta
keep sugar, fat and salt to a minimum
eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day – do not skip meals
If people with diabetes eat foods that are too high in sugar, their blood sugar levels can rise to dangerously high levels. Carbohydrates are broken down into sugar, or glucose, and absorbed into the bloodstream and affect blood sugar levels.
