An increase in dietary fibre intakes and decreased intakes of fat, particularly saturated fat, as well as sugar and salt are recommended in the NACNE Report. If these recommendations are followed, increased intakes of starch will be required to maintain the calorific value of the diet. Implementation of these recommendations in the schools' home economics curriculum involves changes in both the theoretical science taught and in the recipes used.
