News Report

Summary

Use this fictional TV news report, announcing a proposed ban on under 16s eating junk food, to teach Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 PSHE and science lessons on healthy eating and nutrition.

During the video, a news anchor explains that the fictional British Institute of Eating Control (BIEC) wants to ban under 16s from eating certain types of food deemed unhealthy, including pizza, chips, burgers and fizzy drinks.

A BIEC representative gives reasons for the proposed ban and a reporter canvases the reaction of real people who would be affected if the ban were to be imposed, including a nutritionist, a parent, children, and a school cook.

The video fits into a detailed lesson plan for primary and secondary science lessons at Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 and should prompt discussion, based on scientific evidence, about whether there should be any control over the food we eat.
