Abstract

In this article, we start with a history of Home Economics followed by a discussion of Home Economics in the Irish curriculum, the development of the profession and its pedagogical base; finally, we make a case drawing on the existing literature for home economists as key catalysts in any ‘whole of school’ programme around food and health.
