Manifesto – Foreword
“More must be done to invest in an all-round food education for our kids; one that includes learning about where food comes from and how it’s grown as well as the hands-on experience of cooking in the classroom.
I strongly believe that teaching our kids these life skills gives them the best start in life, for their own health, the health of their kids and their kids’ kids.
And if our kids are also getting a tasty, nutritious meal at lunchtime, their prospects are even better.
It’s been proven time and time again during the last five years that a healthy school meal improves a child’s ability to learn and do well at school.
We can’t ignore that; we must continue to feed our children better, even better.
We must invest in our kids; they are the future and they deserve it.”
