Human nutrition should be added to the secondary education curriculum. Children are encouraged to eat healthy and cook healthy, however they are not taught the why behind it, for example what function a nutrient has in the body, or the current guidelines.
Human nutrition is a vast subject concerning health, and food, the basis of existance. Society would benefit from learning about in detail.
They learn history... how will that benefit their future. This kind of education in the future will reduce diseases such as obesity, cancer, heart disease and diabetes, and in turn will be a the huge reduction in costs to the NHS and society.
The government needs to act now. Please sign, we need as many signitures as possible.
Please sign this petition if you feel Human Nutrition should be added to the curriculum, to teach the future generations WHY a healthy balanced diet is important.
The Nutrition on the curriculum petition to Schools, government, health care, parents and children was written by concerned about our future and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
