From September 2014 all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal.
The meal provides at least two of the suggested five a day portions of fruit and vegetables and meets the Government's food and nutrient based standards. A school meal consists of a main course, fruit based dessert, fresh milk and bread. There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that nutrition and a healthy diet boost children's performance at school.
Alternatively, you can provide your child with a lunch box.
