Leaflets used to communicate healthy lunchtime offers for pupils

July 8, 2011 by  

Cheshire East Council will use leaflets to communicate the lunchtime offering to pupils throughout the region in the new term.

The School Meals Service will be promoting healthy choices at mealtimes in the ‘What’s for Lunch’ flyer, which will be distributed to children in schools throughout Cheshire East, Crewe and the surrounding areas.

This communication comes on the back of the news that the Council will be increasing the price of school meals by 10p per day for both primary and secondary school canteens. The Council have reported that this increase in cost, to £2.10 per day for primary school pupils and £2.15 per day for secondary school pupils was brought on by increasing raw materials costs from suppliers.

Despite the increase in price, Cheshire East council still expects to serve up to 17,500 school meals every day, meaning children will continue to eat meals prepared by schools. This is why essential information on making healthy choices at meal times has been produced using flyer printing.

Crewe, Cheshire and the surrounding areas offer two courses at lunchtime to school children, where pupils can make a choice for themselves between two main courses and a dessert. The ‘What’s for Lunch’ flyer will help to provide guidance to ensure that children are able to make wise food choices for themselves – something that schools and local authorities are increasingly keen to promote at a time when childhood obesity is very much in the public eye.
