Food and Nutrition Pathway


Welcome to the PHS Food and Nutrition Pathway 

Students have opportunities to learn knowledge and skills on food choices for optimal health for a lifetime. Science is integrated in this pathway creating the potential for the final two courses to earn a fourth science credit. Students discuss the basic chemistry concepts of food science and evaluate the effects of processing, preparation, and storage on the quality, safety, wholesomeness and nutritive value of foods. Students may look for a career as a food scientist, nutritional consultant, in quality control, test kitchens and food preparation facilities. This pathway culminates with an opportunity for students to take  the National Restaurant Association’s end of pathway assessment and to potentially earn ServSafe certification.

Expectations for all students is to learn as much as possible every day! I expect full participation, respect for all, and your very best every day!
