Since April 2017 Obesity Action Scotland has been calling on national and local governments to place greater value on school meals and create an eating culture by following our four recommendations for action: 

1. Use unprocessed or minimally processed foods wherever possible
2. Prioritise vegetables, soup and salad over puddings
3. Reduce free sugar content towards Scottish Dietary Goals
4. Create a positive physical and social environment for school meals

We will continue to work with a number of partner organisations and seek to influence school meals with the aim of seeking investment and development in school meals to ensure we offer every child in Scotland a healthy and enjoyable food and dining experience.
