Cateringcompanies have been visiting schools demonstrating delicious, healthy dishes such as stir fry chicken and whizzing up some gorgeous fresh fruit smoothies, all with the aid of the children themselves, who get to try the meals afterwards.

"Research has shown that children who eat healthy, balanced meals have better concentration and are likely to perform better in their studies. School meals are also a chance for children to develop social skills as well as being convenient for busy parents." Gerry Clinton

Over the last 20 years or so, schools have been under increasing pressure to reduce the school lunches time allowed for a lunch break. That pressure has often come from the difficulties in finding time for the curriculum and from the lack of suitable space for pupils to eat and socialise. Yet, evidence shows that this trend goes against what children need to develop and to learn to their full potential.

Recent research for the School Food Trust shows that :

1. the lunch break is seen, by most pupils, as the most important part of the day, as they crave time to refuel, relax, socialise and exercise. The better their ‘customer journey’ or experience, the more likely they are to choose and enjoy a healthy school meal*

2. having a nutritionally-balanced school meal in an attractive environment helps improve children’s behaviour and their ability to focus on learning, in the afternoons**.

Therefore, during that lunch break, children need to be able to eat nutritionally-balanced, appealing meals in a comfortable, enjoyable environment. They are then more likely to benefit from the break and return to the classroom refreshed and ready to learn. As a result it makes sense  that, rather than reducing the lunch break, pupils’ health, development, behaviour and performance is better served by enhancing or extending it.
