Senior 4 SEC Preparation Sheet Details

Dear senior 4 students,

As I have explained in class, on Friday 5th May you will have the first part of the SEC exam which will be the preparation sheet.

What do you need to prepare?

So as I told you I will give you the assignment and a blank preparation sheet on the day. You need to get with you the recipes of main dishes and drinks (smoothies/fresh juices) which can be used for the possible scenarios that you may be given in the exam.

Make sure that you have adequate recipes of main dishes and drinks for the following:

  • lactose intolerant
  • breastfeeding/pregnant
  • obesity/heart disease
  • coeliac
  • lacto ovo vegetarian
  • yeast dough (home made pizza)

Also make sure that the ingredients of your recipe are adapted to make them suitable for one person. Make sure as well that the ingredients are in grams not ounces.

Apart from finding the recipes for the above, make sure that you know what the conditions are so that you can make reference to the disease in the reasons for choice. Also make sure that you go through the Sample Preparation Sheet which I sent you via email and make sure that you know the nutrients that are present in your chosen dishes so that you will find it easy to complete the Reasons for Choice of the Preparation sheet.

Should you have any queries or if you would like to show me the recipes feel free to contact me.
