Pick up free healthy eating book from your child’s primary school
Look out for the Little Book of Goodness at your child’s primary school next week. The book has been produced by the School Food Trust in response to parents’ concerns about what their children should eat at school.
Prue Leith, School Food Trust chair, commented:
‘We understand that parents have a lot on their plate at this time of year. They have so many decisions to make when their child starts school and it is a very busy time.
‘We want to take the pressure off parents and make sure they have all the information they need to make the right meal choice for their child. That’s why we created the Little Book of Goodness
- to help ease this process for parents and hopefully put some of their anxieties to rest.
‘School meals are now the healthiest they’ve ever been. But many parents still don’t realise that choosing school dinners really is the best way to make sure their children are getting the nutrients they need to help them learn and succeed.’
The booklet also includes a competition giving 50 parents the chance to win free healthy school lunches for one child for one whole school year. Details on how to enter the competition are inside the Little Book of Goodness.
