Sheen Mount have relaunched their school meal service. They have now got 350 children eating a school lunch for 3 days a week ( that is over 85% of the school) with 220 children eating lunch 2 days a week. The school and the caterers have worked really hard to ensure that the children get a great lunch cooked from scratch in new kitchens with locally produced food.
It is really heartening to learn that the school have also gone to great lengths to make the dining experience very civilised by ensuring the children have square tables and proper plates. Queuing times have been reduced and the remaining children who have packed lunches are allowed to sit with their friends.
Well done to every one at the school. I am sure the children and parents really appreciate the efforts the school and caterers have made. I think initiatives like this will do more to promote children's health than expensive health promotion campaigns.
I am sure that Stephanie from School Food Matters has been very helpful with this.
