How can school cooks help to encourage healthy eating? New standards for food in schools are coming to school kitchens! Foods associated with a growing range of child health issues such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease are being replaced with healthier options.
The government’s new standards for school food will have a positive impact on children’s health, encourage them to eat more nutritious food and improve the quality of school food nationwide. Hundreds of cooks throughout the country are already working towards a healthier nation. School by school they are making it happen!
Join us as we visit all singing, all dancing school cook, Molly Parker. At her flagship primary school in East London food education is a vital part of the lunch experience, and if your memories of school lunches are all soggy cabbage and semolina, Maureen Blodwyn at Warley High will show you just how much things have improved.
