Setting up student accounts on Nutrition Program

How do I set up my students accounts and how do I change them after a year?
Once you have purchased a subscription, first login as the Teacher to manage your users. You see a list of users, with random letters generated by the program. You can change the usernames and all the passwords to make them the same. Each student can be given their own named account, or you can use those on the automatic system. Be aware that we have over 100,000 students registered for the program, so choose passwords that you think are unique.

When you want to change the users, tick to “Clear the account”, which empties it of the work, then type in the new name to replace the account name that you want to change. Finally click Update and the new student has a new account name and a fresh, empty account to work with.You can update a large list of student names using our csv system found on your Teacher login.

Tips for NEA 2 – Food Styling

Presenting dishes for NEA 2

Presentation skills are essential for the final dishes for NEA 2.

When I photographed my dishes that I tested for Food Preparation Assessment NEA 2, they needed great improvement.

Chicken pie with flaky pastry needs some garnish and serving ideas

Food teachers – get your students to research how to style food for presentations and search for their dishes.

Nutrition Program reviews from Facebook

Thankyou to teachers for the kind reviews about The Nutrition Program on Facebook chatroom – nice to have such encouragement.

Jason Baxter
Essential tool, have been subscriber for as long as I can remember and it’s also a useful resource at ks3 too. Used it in my yr7s in June to illustrate how to adapt ingredients to meet healthy eating guidelines and excellent tool for demonstrating numeracy and literacy.

I have used Jenny Ridgwell The Nutrition Program for 10 years or more! Essential tool, have been subscriber for as long as I can remember and it’s also a useful resource at ks3 too. Used it in my yr7s in June to illustrate how to adapt ingredients to meet healthy eating guidelines and excellent tool for demonstrating numeracy and literacy.

I had this at my last school, and so did one of my post 16 students. My HOD felt that the Jenny Ridgwell one was worth the money as you can hover over for the function of the nutrient ask for alternatives that were higher in that nutrient etc. even without the costing element, the generally functionality is much better. She used a free program and searched for semi skimmed milk in various combination of those words and still had to search through a massive list to get to what she wanted. She said she found it frustrating after using the Nutrition Program.

If your school can afford it it is brilliant,

Sam Oldale
I think it’s great and would find it difficult to manage without it. Nutrition, costing , star profiles, food labels and a few other bits and pieces.

Andrea Wilson
I would not be without it.

Nina Martin
It’s great, couldn’t be without it, especially for GCSE and A-level.

Julia Steras
We use it , worth the subscription

 

Martha Collison from Great British Bake Off 2014

When I met Martha Collison on a recent Guild of Food Writers trip to Devon, I was surprised by two things – 1) that someone so young had achieved so much in the food writing world and 2) that she knew about The Nutrition Program by using it in her school. There were many questions that I wanted to ask her, especially about her passion for food and if her school food lessons had anything to do with it. So here we go – in my text book writing style.

1. Tell us what you learnt about food in your school lessons.

 

 

2. You used the Nutrition Program – how was it useful in your recipe work?

 

3. We talked about how you wrote about Food science in your first recipe book, Twist. Can you explain why food science matters?

 

 

4. Now tell us what you are doing next in the food world – new projects, travel, research.

 

5. What advice do you have for food students who want to discover more about the work opportunities related to food?

 

6. Any finally – any tips and inspiration for all those amazing food teachers out there?

 

Many thanks Jenny Ridgwell
