LACA looks forward to more children being able to celebrate the event this year as restrictions are eased and children can socialise and eat together again. For 2021 ‘The School Tucker Trial’ is being launched, the aim to encourage as many children as possible back into the dining room and enjoying school lunches together. With the event coinciding with the popular TV programme ‘I’m a Celebrity’ our campaign will make school lunches fun, relevant and enjoyable for all students. They can collect stars as they stay for meals throughout the week.
As well as the trial there are 5 great new theme days to adapt and run. The promotions don’t have to be hard work, schools and caterers can be as they creative as they like or run alongside current menus with meat free days and a roast dinner day. The themes promote important issues surrounding school meals such as the environment, benefits of health and development, but more importantly make the days fun for all.
