Appetite for Life
‘Appetite for Life’ sets out the strategic direction and actions required to improve the nutritional standards of food and drink served in schools across Wales.
School meals can make an important contribution to the diets of children and young people. Consuming a more nutritious diet during the school day and developing the skills necessary to support healthy eating in the wider environment are critical in helping to reduce diet related health problems like heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
Appetite for Life is part of a broader agenda on food and fitness for children and young people which is set out in the Welsh Government’s ‘Food and Fitness Implementation Plan’.
The ‘Appetite for Life Action Plan’ was developed through a consultation exercise with children and young people, detailed discussions with the Local Authority Catering Association and from lessons learned from other parts of the UK.
As part of this work a two year action research project was launched in 2008 , involving nine pilot schools across four Local Authority areas. The project explored the issues raised in moving towards implementing the Draft Guidelines for school food. The project report was published in December 2010, and a copy can be accessed via the link on the right of this page.
The Welsh Government is working in partnership with the Welsh Local Government Association to support school meal providers to implement the recommendations set out in Appetite for Life.
These web pages contain supporting documents to help school meal providers implement Appetite for Life recommendations.
