Xenon and Year 9
Have a go at cooking some recipes. Some of them are very simple and do not require special equipment so you could definitely have a go at home. The Food a Fact of Life website is a great place to start as it links in the skills you need too.
Complete some supermarket research online - Use the internet to find the cheapest price, and the most expensive price, for the following commonly used ingredients. They can be branded or unbranded:
5.Small bar of chocolate
7.Pack of beef burgers (fresh or frozen)
9.Tin Mushy peas
10.Ready salted crisps
Now, do some Maths, how much money could you save if you bought the cheapest ingredients? If you made these basic swaps to your weekly shop how much money might you save in 1 year? 10 years?
