Quick Bites

Refresh.ED Quick Bites are shorter activities to introduce food and nutrition topics to students. The Quick Bites cover a range of recommended food and nutrition topics suitable for primary and secondary students. Some of the activities complement the existing Refresh.ED Curriculum Units, so educators can choose to extend their teaching of the topics by using the additional Refresh.ED resources.

Whilst each Quick Bites activity has a year level and learning area to align with curriculum, all could be adapted for different classroom needs to target critical life skills and understandings.

Developed as part of the Quick Bites resources, Swap to Healthy Eating introduces concepts of healthy eating to students, demonstrates whether adolescents are meeting the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating recommendations, and provides examples of healthy food and drink swaps to reduce consumption of discretionary foods.
