I joined in the celebrations of National School Meals Week (4-8 November 2013) with a visit to Cale Green Primary School.
I met the school catering staff and joined the children for lunch, enjoying one of 16,000 school dinners provided every day in Stockport’s schools by Solutions SK.
The Cale Green pupils gave positive feedback about their meals and it was good to chat to them about their ambitions for the future.
The primary school menus are well balanced and full of nutrition – my lunch was delicious and beautifully served.
Young children need a good healthy meal in the middle of the day so that they can concentrate in the afternoon, and eating together is such a good way of developing social skills.
