Theme park food unhealthy

2nd July 2008

A survey has highlighted that theme parks, museums and holiday attractions are serving up unhealthy meals to children.

The local government group LACORS surveyed 220 facilities across Britain and found they were providing meals loaded with sugar, salt and fat. Not one of the 397 meals aimed at seven to 10 year olds that it tested fully met the guidelines of the School Food Trust, although the association representing leisure parks, BALPPA, said that healthy options were nearly always available.
