Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

The start of a good piece of work here. Two health diseases caused by poor diet have been described and suggestions are given as to how they can be improved. Well done for including the criteria to be addressed.
I would have liked to have seen a little more information in relation to Rickets - what other foods apart from milk could help? Perhaps detail regarding the source of the information could be provided so the reader can follow up what has been said.
There were several spelling & grammar errors which could be minimised by careful proof-reading.
Overall though a good piece of work.
4/5
