I am gemused (but not at all surprised) to see that, despite Nanny's attempts to force kids to eat "skool dinners" and to conduct mass inspections of lunch boxes, skool dinners are not as healthy as Nanny would have us believe.
Dispatches shown on Channel 4 on Monday revealed that, despite Jamie Oliver's high-profile campaign to improve school meals and the millions of pounds pumped into improving school canteens etc, evidence suggests that strategies to improve the food served in all our schools are fast coming undone.
"The Dispatches survey provides worrying new evidence about previously banned products being made available to pupils. The programme speaks to one catering supplier who says that once again many schools are now looking to source cheap, low-quality products.Now, what was I saying the other day about Nanny's chums in Cardiff council?
One parent did his own detective work to discover out of the £2.10 per meal charged by one council, only 59 pence was being spent on ingredients.
As a consequence many children are voting with their feet, either bringing their own packed lunches or going outside school and eating from take-aways.
Dispatches examines the councils trying to fight back and restrict the growth of fast food outlets near schools, and reveals the national chain reluctant to take no for an answer."
Oh yes, I remember:
"Nanny's chums in Cardiff council for recently creating a temporary in house job (note the job is only available to employees of Cardiff council - why?), the sole purpose of which seems to be to encourage children to eat more school meals."It seems that, despite what she says in public, Nanny is determined to force children to eat shite; so long as it is her shite!
Winter diet tip: Given that we are now entering the autumn, an easy way to ensure kids keep warm is to feed them a slice of toast liberally spread with dripping and salt.
It's nutritious, tasty and cheap!
