Soft drinks levy cash for schools!

1 March 2017

The tireless work of sugar campaigners is already paying dividends with the government announcing  £415m funding to support a new Healthy Pupils Capital Programme. 

Schools are to receive £415 million to help pupils benefit from healthier, more active lifestyles. The funding will be made available to all state-funded schools and sixth form colleges via the local authority or direct to academies and smaller multi-academy trusts.

This is good news indeed for children as the cash is in addition to funding already allocated to breakfast clubs and for Universal Infant Free School Meals. We hope that schools will see value in spending the funds on food education programmes involving cooking and growing food to equip children with the life skills they need to lead healthier lives.
