School Food

Description

In this programme, we explore the subject of school food. Should schools be responsible for what children eat? Should children have any choice in the matter?

Reporter Charlotte Hume introduces the topic by asking schools, parents and children for their opinions whilst Sheena McDonald discusses the issues with a studio panel.

Dinner lady Cathy Stewart says she is sceptical about the amount of money that has been invested in improving school food.

Deputy head Cathy Bryan questions the high level of responsibility placed on schools, but parent Cassandra Jardine wants to see more done to make children eat healthily.

School Food Trust representative Michael Nelson joins the group in the studio to explain the government's plans for change.

Can the panel agree on who's ultimately responsible for our children's eating habits?
