Helping students to thrive

 Developing critical skills and capacity in nutrition and health

Students are able to quickly log into myfood24 using a unique project code, created by the teacher, to begin completing their diaries.  On diary completion, students can access graphs summarising their own nutritional intake, while teaching professionals will have access to the whole class data as graphs and downloadable spreadsheets. Our feedback reports can help to stimulate discussions and enhance student self-study.

Promoting discussions

Group feedback can be explored together in class

myfood24 for teaching provides both the teacher and the students with immediate feedback on a whole variety of macro- and micronutrients. 

Feedback is displayed in a number of rich graphs which can be analysed at both the individual and group level. It is the only software where data from the whole class can be explored together, without aggregating information elsewhere first.

When used in practical group sessions, myfood24 for teaching can help to stimulate classroom discussions. For example: whether nutrient recommendations are being met, the importance of meeting these recommendations to ensure optimal nutrient intake and the impact not meeting these could have on a person's health.

myfood24 for teaching is also suitable for student self study; for example BSc and MSc research projects. 

Essential concepts

myfood24 helps to deliver key nutrition principles

myfood24 for teaching can be used to support classroom learning for a wide range of disciplines including: nutrition, dietetics, food science, sports and exercise science, medicine and psychology.

Use in practical sessions creates engaging ways to teach key nutrition messages such as:

  • how well particular diets match to reference nutrient intake values
  • the impact portion size can have on nutritional intake
  • nutritional trends between dietary patterns. 

To help convey some of these principles, we offer lesson plans and presentation slides with some licence options, please contact us to find out more.
