The children at Weddington Primary School had discussions with the County Caterers this week, and had the opportunity to present their views on school lunches. Members of the School Council, who represent every year group, thought about their favourite meals and things they would like to see on the menu. Their views were then discussed at a meeting with Liz from the County Caterers and school cook Tammy. During the meeting it was explained to the children that not all their suggestions could be used due to government guidelines on healthy eating, cost implications and awareness of children with food allergies. However, some of the children’s’ ideas, including meals to celebrate different festivals, are being taken back to the people who plan the meals.
