Chippy about setting an example
Alas, the Diary has fresh evidence that the re-education of DfES officials is not yet complete. A TES reporter who has spent two weeks working at Lilian Baylis school in Lambeth watched five DfES officials enter the canteen during a visit last Friday. Now Lilian Baylis is more than a step ahead of the guidelines: it serves chips only once a week and always provides a range of healthy alternatives. But last Friday happened to be chips day. So did the officials choose the salad or jacket potatoes to accompany their delicious, bread-crumbed fish? Of course not. All five went for the chips.
