We have been awarded GOLD under the Soil Association Food For Life Scheme!

Evidence suggests that:

  • Pupils in Food for Life schools are twice as likely to eat five a day and a third less likely to eat no fruit or vegetables than pupils in comparison schools. (Jones et al, 2015)
  • Pupils in Food for Life schools eat around a third more fruit and vegetables than pupils in comparison schools, and significantly more fruit and vegetables at home. (Jones et al, 2015)
  • Pupils in Food for Life schools are 40% more likely to report that they 'like' or 'really like' school meals. (Jones et al, 2015)
  • More than 50% of primary schools in England are serving menus certified by the Food for Life Catering Mark.
  • Free school meal take up increased by an average of 13 percentage points over two years in Food for Life schools. (Orme et al, 2011)
  • Evidence points towards Food for Life's potential to contribute to helping 'close the gap' for disadvantaged children in terms of their health and academic attainment. (Teeman et al, 2011)
  • 45% of parents reported eating more vegetables as a result of Food for Life. (Orme et al, 2011)
