Michael Gove – 2013 Comments on School Dinners

The comments made by Michael Gove, the then Secretary of State for Education, on 12 July 2013.

The whole virtue of the ‘School food plan’ is that it’s there to help – it emphasises the vital importance of making sure food is high quality and tasty and creating a culture in your school where everyone appreciates the importance of food.

What I’d like to see is more children eating school lunches and fewer having packed lunches, and more children feeling healthier and more energetic throughout the day.

I would like to thank John and Henry for the hard work that went into this this plan and believe we now have a set of actions that can make a real difference in schools right across the country.
