Somerset County Council is planning to make school dinner menus available on the social networking site Twitter for inspection.
"Using a social network like Twitter is the next logical step," said Karen Rafferty of Somerset County Services. The service will come into effect from the next school term in September.
The trail will last for a semester and results will be made available online. parents, grandparents and carers can get daily updates by subscribing to Twiitter updates. There are 88 school sites in the county.
