    Apologies if this is in the wrong place. I am a nurse looking into a multi-agency approach to obesity for a piece of post-grad course work and am trying without success to find out about cooking and nutrition in secondary education.

    Simple questions for those that know:

    1. Is cooking a "proper" part of the curriculum, as in is it assessed?
    2. Does it fully enable children to know how to cook for themselves or is it a starter education that needs parental follow up to be effective?
    3. Does it enable them to know how to buy ingredients in an economic way, eg: buying single veggies vs buying big pre-pack bags.

    Quick answers are fine - it's a short report I'm doing so one word/line replies would be fantastic!

    Thanks, I've clicked join but it looks like there will be some qualifying email hoop I need to get through to get in as it's a group only for food teachers. I hope it's an easy question I can use my ninja skills to answer and then ask them there :)
