The school food ambassador programme

Single Image Display

Students monitor school food standards

We believe students need to be involved in monitoring their own school meals to make sure standards are being met.  The dining room needs to be a pleasant place to eat and promote social interactions. The role of this programme is to put student voices and enthusiasm at the heart of our efforts and to reflect our desire to be a ‘Child Friendly City’.

Its success is dependant on support, feedback, continuity and keeping the students involved motivated. Its about more than just health, it provides a powerful tool to engage students, encourage ownership and for them to work with one and another and the school to make positive choices.

In support of the School ambassador programme a game has been developed called The healthy school lunch - yes no sometimes game. The aim of the game is to show the importance of eating healthier in school. See downloads below.
