Food and Nutrition I
Students enrolled in Food and Nutrition I will receive rigorous and relevant learning experiences as they study the principles of nutrition for individual and family health, fitness, and wellness. Students will gain knowledge and experiences in nutrition, food safety and sanitation, kitchen work centers, meal preparation, table service and etiquette, and nutrition-related careers. Critical thinking and practical problem-solving are emphasized in a co-curricular approach that incorporated principles of mathematics, science, writing, communications and economics. Food and Nutrition I is a prerequisite for Culinary Arts I. Integration of the Family and Consumer Science Student Organization, Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), concepts greatly enhance the curriculum.
