Home Economics has a clear link to the present and future life of every young person.

However, it’s not all about cooking!  Daily, we are bombarded with nutritional information and shocking statistics regarding the nations health and environmental issues - many of which may leave us feeling confused. So, why do foods help reduce the likelihood of heart disease and cancer?

What challenges are our Farmers coping with to supply high quality food to us as consumers?  Home Economics helps to answer many of these questions and sort out fact from fiction.
