Devise a specimen menu (using Nutritics) for three days for ONE member of the following family: Mother aged 38 years, father aged 40 years, daughter aged 16 years and son aged 6 years. You can choose whether the family is either: a sporting family; a vegetarian family; or a low-income family.
Choose ONE member for your study but comment on how your menu might need adapting to meet the needs of the rest of the family.
Calculate the menu’s nutritional value and compare this to current dietary recommendations appropriate for the chosen individual (choose SACN recommendations within Nutritics).
Discuss the suitability of your menu by applying the principles of human nutrition
