My mate sent me this rant yesterday, so I thought I'd share it with you:
Don't know if any of you have been watching Jamie's school dinners on C4 recently, so a few scary facts:
The average allowance for a school dinner in the UK is 35-45p. That's the same price as a packet of crisps, and a third of what is spent on prison dinners.
15% of all children under 11 are obese, and are given a choice of chips, reconstituted meat and pizza for school dinners.
This evening on TV I saw children who couldn't tell a leek from a potato, thought an asparagus was an onion, ate tomato ketchup sandwiches (white bread of course) for lunch, and disturbingly, a girl who had in her lunchbox a kit kat, an aero and a packet of wotsits.
By the time I have kids going to school (pah! fat chance of that!) I would like them to have a choice of food that I would actually like them to eat. And here's where you come in. Please go to the website below and sign Jamie's petition to do something about the absolute crap that is served in school meals these days.
I hope my nan doesn't watch the programme, she used to be a dinner lady and the shock of what they serve these days would probably give her a heart attack!
Well, until the next burning issue...
She won't mind. Watch out for more. If we get her started on George Bush, it'll be a daily feature!
