Michael Gove – 2014 Comments on New School Food Menus

The comments made by Michael Gove, the then Secretary of State for Education, on 17 June 2014.

These new food standards will ensure all children are able to eat healthy, nutritious meals at school.

We now have a clear and concise set of food standards which are easier for cooks to follow and less expensive to enforce. Crucially we have achieved this without any compromise on quality or nutrition.

There has been a great deal of progress in providing healthy school meals in recent years and these new standards will help deliver further improvements.
