Getting closer to Christmas, roast dinners are coming to the forefront of our minds on those cold Sunday nights. So, it seems only appropriate that this celebration filters down to children. Led by the Soil Association’s Food for Life programme and Knorr Gravy, The Great Roast Dinner campaign has been launched aiming to encourage more pupils to eat a healthy school dinner.

The celebration will put great school food in the spotlight through a series of roast dinner-themed events taking place throughout the academic year. 

Schools will be encouraged to invite parents and other family members through the gates to share a delicious and healthy lunch with their children, so they can see just how great school food can be.

James Cashmore, Director of Food for Life, said: “It has never been more important for us to make healthy eating easy and normal for children.”
