The Food for Life Partnership (FFLP) aims to improve healthy eating and food awareness among children and young people by creating a positive food culture within schools. It encourages schools to serve fresh, seasonal and ethically sourced food and promotes a programme of activities on nutrition and food provenance.
- Schools had transformed their food culture, with positive outcomes for children, families and communities
- Making meal times more attractive to the school community, through improvements to the food and dining environment, had led to increased meal uptake
- School staff felt that The FFLP had contributed to improvements in pupils’ attainment and behaviour
- The experiential learning approach promoted by the FFLP was welcomed, especially for pupils with learning difficulties
- Schools found it challenging to fulfil the award criteria, especially in relation to food provenance.
