Why food in schools?
For the last three years both the Department of Health and Department for Education and Skills have been working on a Food in Schools programme that aims to help schools implement a whole school approach to food education and healthy eating.
The website will provide valuable guidance and resources for anyone working in or with a school on food related activities throughout the school day, including teachers, parents, school governors, head teachers, pupils and health professionals. There is information on a broad range of activities from guidance on how to set up a school food partnership or a healthier breakfast club to details of local Healthy School's support networks.
Food in Schools programme
The Food in Schools (FiS) programme is a joint venture between
the Department of Health (DH) and the Department for Education
and Skills (DfES). A whole range of nutrition-related activities
and projects are being developed as part of the programme,
to complement and add value to existing healthier food initiatives
