There are regulations governing to the nth degree what schools should provide in terms of school dinners. These should go and be replaced by a general duty on schools to provide good quality and nutritious food.

Why is this idea important?

I looked up these regulations a bit ago and despite having been involved in drafting pretty complicated legislation myself found them particularly unfathomable. They are rubbish and I bet push schools down the route of using large companies and county council suppliers for their school dinners. I also doubt anyone checks up on compliance in detail. So should we not just regulate for what we want – which is good quality and nutritious food for our children rather than trying to micro manage dinner ladies and gentlemen.
