Pupils shun school meals13th July 2007
The number of school meals being eaten by secondary school pupils has slumped to an all time-low.
Figures released by the Local Authorities Catering Association (LACA) show a 20% fall in the uptake of secondary school meals in the last two years. Now, only four in 10 pupils eat the school meals provided, the lowest level since they were made mandatory in 1944.
Some critics blame Jamie Oliver’s television campaign to promote healthier meals in schools, though the LACA reject this.
