Parents say schools are bossy over lunch boxes

28th June 2010

Ofsted inspectors have said parents feel schools are too interfering when it comes to advising them what they can fill their child's lunch box with.

The inspectors went to 39 schools in England to find out how they were dealing with healthy eating messages. "Where consultation with families had been poor or where information had not been worded sensitively, parents saw the school as being 'interfering' and 'bossy' and reacted against the advice", they said.
