Fenland schools to encourage healthy eating during next week’s National School Meals Week
HEALTHY eating will be the main theme on school menus across Fenland next week as part of the National School Meals Week.
Schools across the area will join others around the country in promoting healthy eating, from November 8 to November 12, to show children the importance of nutritious meals at lunchtime.
Special events have been planned throughout the week to support the initiative and county council caterers will be serving dinners to a number of high-profile figures.
All Saints Primary School in March will host a lunch on Monday for the Mayor of March, Councillor Andrew Pugh, the Bishop of Ely and a chef from Claridges Hotel in London.
On Wednesday, Councillor Martin Curtis, Cambridgeshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Children will join staff and children at Alderman Jacobs Primary School for their own special lunch.
