      (expect breakfast, lunch, dinner, 2 snacks) breakfast =3m

      lunch =3m

      dinner =3m

      balanced menu format =2m

      =2m (2 x 1)

      =2m (3 out of 4 food groups in the day’s menu)

      breakfast should have 1 hot and 1 cold drink, something wholemeal eg wholemeal toast

      always write from the centre of the page, add commas and not 'and' or 'served with' draw a box around the menu. aadd a line, squiggle or x's between each course
