Jeanette Orrey to judge’ Young Times’ competition to find the best school meal
16 May 2012 - An article in the Young Times today is seeking to celebrate the country’s best school meals with Jeanette Orrey rating the entries for nutritional content.
The Young Times is asking children to submit photos of their school dinners by 30th May in response to Martha Payne’s ‘NeverSeconds’ blog which sparked worldwide interest in school dinners.
Jeanette who has spear-headed the Food for Life Partnership and is a Policy Advisor to the programme said “If I saw Martha’s meal being served in a school I would not be very happy”. Food for Life Partnership school dinners are fresh, healthy and use seasonal ingredients from farms with good standards of animal welfare. We encourage all schools to make sure their meals meet the Catering Mark standards, which include the government's national guidelines that ensure schools serve a balanced meal with at least two portions of fruit or vegetables each day.
To get involved in the competition, you can read the full article here (there is a pay wall to access the article). Entries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 May 2012 and you are asked to include your ‘food-o-meter’, whether you enjoyed it and what your perfect lunch would be.
Martha’s favourite is roast dinner so click here to find out more about the 1 million meals we served up on Roast Dinner Day last year!
