Know what a balanced diet consists of and why we need to eat certain foods.



The History of the Eatwell Guide | Diet & Weight Loss Advice | myBMI

The above Eatwell Plate illustrates the proportion of food types we should try to incorporate into our daily eating patterns. The largest proportion of any meal should be mostly from the fruit and vegetable group, followed by carbohydrates such as bread, potatoes, cereals, rice, pasta. We need a small proportion of dairy products such as milk, butter, cheese and a small proportion of protein from meat, fish, pulses and plant based alternative foods. We should keep sugars, salts or high fat content foods to the minimum.



Explain what a balanced diet consists of and how you think it fits into a healthy lifestyle.

Reflect whether your diet reflect these principles, if not, how can you swap and change to make it as balanced as possible.

Describe positive and negative feelings we can have when we eat certain foods – too much food, not enough food, certain types of foods, favourite foods, take-aways, celebratory food.

Reflect how we may feel if we eat regularly the foods on the Eatwell plate and how we may feel if certain foods are lacking in our diets.


Extension (optional)

Research why the body needs us to eat proteins, carbohydrates, fats, fruit and vegetables.

Key Stage 4 PSHE Topic – Relationships – Romance, Attraction and Diversity


Know there is diversity in romantic and sexual attraction and developing sexuality, including sources and reassurance and how to access them.

Romantic attraction = being emotionally attracted.

Sexual attraction = being physically attracted.

Pleasure is gained in intimate relationships through both emotional bonding and physical fulfilment.There are sources of support for anyone experiencing concerns with their sexuality or sexual orientation.

  • Cook a favourite meal either together or for your partner
  • Hold hands on a lovely walk
  • Give a plant or flowers
  • Plant a tree/shrub in your partner’s name
  • Prepare a surprise picnic
  • Watch and cheer your partner on at a match or game
