School Food Plan

  • News

The school food plan is a government backed strategy and set of guidelines for making sure children are experiencing a healthy diet at school.

The information below is taken from the government’s website section on healthy eating standards.

Food served in schools and academies in England must meet the school food standards so that children have healthy, balanced diets.

The school food standards apply to all maintained schools, and academies that were founded before 2010 and after June 2014. They must provide:

  • high-quality meat, poultry or oily fish
  • fruit and vegetables
  • bread, other cereals and potatoes

There can’t be:

  • drinks with added sugar, crisps, chocolate or sweets in school meals and vending machines
  • more than 2 portions of deep-fried, battered or breaded food a week

You can read more about school food standards on the School Food Plan website.
