School Mealtimes Introduction

It can feel really uncomfortable to send your child off to school, only for them to come home with some new and worrying beliefs about food. If you're concerned about what your child is telling you about mealtimes at school, please use the steps below to advocate for positive change.

Parents, teachers and schools can all work together to improve the food environments our children are growing up in.
