I believe that schools should provide a better standard of food provision across the board. I am very fortunate to attend a school which has a very high quality of school meals at reasonable price. However, this should not be at the cost of educational quality. It has been the case that a large amount of money has been put into what could be called 'periphery services'. Now this all well and good but you need to make sure that the primary focus of investment should be on high quality education. But on the matter of food, a well nourished student will be far more responsive than one which is fed poor quality school meals.
To further the point which I was making earlier, the major school regeneration projects in the UK have failed to look at the improvement of educational standards in spite of the addressing of issues of good food and the high level of periphery provisions. The this has been the case with the healthy eating initiative which the Government has liked to introduce. The other matter which has to be considered is that lunch could be considered the least important of the three meals. If parents are well informed about what to feed their children, then the provision of school meals could be replaced with better training standards and the incentives to get a better standard of teachers into the profession.
