Food in Schools

Food and nutrition are essential parts of a healthy lifestyle, and it is best that these healthy eating behaviours are introduced and embedded at an early age.  Schools have a key role to play in this in a number of ways, including provision of nutritious and balanced meals for their pupils, education about what constitutes balanced healthy eating, and the origins of what we eat and why we should or shouldn't eat it.  

The Cornwall Healthy Schools team is here to support you with the implementation and improvement of your school food offer.  Below are some avenues you may wish to consider:
