Parents also expressed their wish to be informed by the school about the meals provided to the children on a day-to-day basis.

Lynda Mitchell, LACA National Chair said: "Winning over hearts, minds and bodies in the drive to reduce obesity and build healthier lifestyles calls for a united front... It is great, therefore, to see parent power playing its part behind the scenes. School caterers want to work in partnership with parents and their children's schools as well as education and health professionals to ensure we can continue to provide good, nutritious food from which children and young people can benefit, both academically and physically."
