31 Oct Nutrition in a Nutshell
The Schools (Health Promotion and Nutrition) Act in Scotland aims to allow school caterers to create well-balanced and nutritious meals for school lunches over a weekly menu.
In accordance with the act menus have to be created under statutory guidance, unlike across the border in England and Wales.
This ensures the best quality meals at affordable prices.
And this therefore means that Scottish schools incorporate new food trends into their school lunch services from paninis and wraps to hot dogs.
The school meals service in Scotland isn’t allowed to serve confectionery and carbonated drinks to its pupils, but that doesn’t mean a sacrifice to good quality food and drink.
Instead pupils are offered not only much more nutritious meals, but meals full of flavour as well as classic Scottish favourites!
