Food for Life works with schools and nurseries, helping them build their knowledge and skills around food education and food provision. And it works. Research shows that pupils in Food for Life schools are twice as likely to eat five a day and a third less likely to eat no fruit or vegetables than pupils in comparison schools.
Both the Food for Life Schools and Early Years Awards provide the support needed to improve the quality of the food that is served, and equips staff with the skills and resources they need to provide an exciting and imaginative programme of food education that shapes good eating habits for life. You can read more about the benefits for schools here and early years here.
With your support, we can work with your child’s school or nursery to achieve just that.
We have created a handy, downloadable pack with all the information you need to speak to your school or nursery and encourage them to sign up with Food for Life. Inside, you will find a letter to send to your school or nursery, some more information about how you can offer your support and a bespoke recipe from Jamie Oliver as a little thank you from us.
