The new School Food Standards (SFS)
A new set of School Food Standards (SFS) has been issued for school lunches effective from January 2015. Eating in school should be a pleasurable experience: These school food standards (SFS) are intended to help children develop healthy eating habits and ensure that they get the energy and nutrition they need across the whole school day. It is just as important to cook food that looks good and tastes delicious; to talk to children about what is on offer and recommend dishes; and to serve the food in a pleasant environment where they can eat with their friends.
