ONE week we are reading about the proposed new Nutritional Guidelines for School Meals (TES, November 19). The next we are reading about a scheme, endorsed by Education Secretary David Blunkett, to encourage pupils to purchase crisps and biscuits in return for maths equipment (TES, November 26).
On the one hand we may applaud this Government for recognising that our children need nutritious meals. On the other hand we see it supporting a scheme to encourage pupils to eat the very things that are to be outlawed by the school meals
initiative - too much fat and sugar!
