Closed petition Allow schools to decide what meals they provide

Government regulations require schools to provide meat-based meals at least 3 days each week. This prevents schools offering healthy meals that are best for their children.

The Requirements for School Food Regulations should be reviewed, and the requirement to provide meat-based meals removed.

More details

Government advisers warn that consumption of meat must be reduced to address the climate crisis. Health advice also recommends eating less meat.

Yet Government regulations force schools to provide meat-based meals, regardless of the damage caused.

This prevents local decision-making, and can impose additional cost - good plant-based meals can be significantly cheaper.

Removing this centrally-imposed regulation would allow schools to make decisions that are best for children and their future.
