Nutrition Skills Workbook
You are required to demonstrate your skills and knowledge in nutrition science through the development of a workbook based on the practical sessions.
There are different parts to this workbook, each part related to a practical session, and these should be compiled into one workbook which you can format yourself.
The first assessment is formative and will not count toward your final mark.
However, the summative assessments will contribute towards your final mark for this module.
Checklist for the Nutrition Skills Workbook:
Title: Nutrition Skills Workbook
Contents page; Should list the individual practical sessions and the appendices
Appendices: These should include your dietary assessment
– Using McCance and Widdowson’s ‘The Composition of Foods’ – available in the library or online (
Create a table (example provided below) to show the energy (kcal) and macronutrient composition (carbohydrate, fat, and protein) for the staple food ingredient (e.g. rice, potato etc.) in each of the recipes in their raw (uncooked) form. Macronutrient composition should be provided as g/100 g and as %energy.

For your named low and normal/high fat dairy recipe pair only (e.g. low vs. high fat macaroni cheese):
a) Create a table(s) to show the amount (g) of carbohydrate, fat and protein provided by the ingredients in each recipe; and sum the values to show the total amount of carbohydrate, fat and protein in each recipe.
