Building on the progress of the Hungry for Success 2003 report, Better Eating, Better Learning: a new context for school food is set to make real change in how school food and food education is delivered by local authorities.
With an innovative whole-school approach that uses school food to teach children about topics such as nutrition and sustainability, brings new context to the roles of suppliers, teachers and catering staff, and aims to tackle many of Scotland’s prevailing health problems, local authorities will play a key part in helping to implement this whole-school approach across Scotland.
This seminar will provide all of this and more from many of the key figures behind the report such as Robin Gourlay and Hugh Fraser, the Chair of the Better Eating, Better Learning working group, as well as a number of experts from a range of different fields.
