Jeannette Orrey, a published cookbook author, early advocate of healthy food in schools, and one of Jamie Oliver's favourite dinner ladies, reveals how her school, St Peters Primary School in East Bridgford, Nottinghamshire, became a trailblazer in providing healthy school meals.
This programme outlines their recipe for success, which in St Peters' case included opting out of the county council's catering scheme, and explores how the headteacher David Maddison and Jeanette have made healthy diet and fitness central components of school life.
