A set of recommendations has been published by the Scottish Government for consultation outlining how food in schools can be further improved. This follows deliberations from a review group containing Food Standards Scotland and NHS Scotland staff. The deadline for the consultation is the end of August.

The Scottish government are also asking for views on welfare foods, including UK Healthy Start Vouchers and the Nursery Milk Scheme. This is part of the government’s drive to give children the best start in life.

Sustain’s Children’s Food Campaign champions children’s rights, parent power and government action to improve the food environment children grow up in.
