    Contemporary teaching approaches today also include modern Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in all subjects. The Home Economics classes can also be made more interesting by integrating various ICT activities, as well as the developing digital literacy can be linked to food literacy education. With this postgraduate paper we wanted to obtain the opinion of students and teachers about learning and teaching Home Economics by means of modern ICT. 106 students and 27 Home Economics teachers participated in the research. The students learned about the food pyramid by means of interactive materials, which we prepared in a web classroom by means of the H5P Plugin. We tested their knowledge about the food pyramid both before and after viewing the interactive materials in the form of a quiz, interactive video, time band, and a practice exercise. The role of the teacher was to help and guide the students when solving the H5P interactive content. At the end of the lesson, both the students and the teachers answered a survey questionnaire that indicated their opinion on this type of learning or teaching.The results showed progress in students' knowledge. This helped us establish that cross-curricular integration of Home Economics and Computer Science or integration of ICT into Home Economics classes influences their learning success in a positive way. Such integration especially increases the student motivation to actively participate in class and to practice regularly. The results of the research showed that integration of ICT into Home Economics classes is more important to students rather than to teachers, however, both students and teachers like such learning, as long as it is not used too often. Home Economics is actually a subject in which the practical part of teaching is predominant and therefore can be enlivened by using ICT in the theoretical part.
