The Sunday Times wants to know about your school meals

Sunday Times Better School Meals

School meals are a hot topic for kid bloggers – we know many of you were inspired to start your blogs because of Martha Payne’s Never Seconds school dinners blog. Recently UK and US bloggers have Mr Turtle and Marabird have been doing a blog post swap as they told each other about their school meals.

Now UK newspaper The Sunday Times is launching a campaign for better school meals – but they need your help to find out what your school meals are like right now.

The campaign has two main aims:

  • To improve the take-up and standards of school meals
  • To encourage children to learn to cook and to understand what is a good diet

How to join in

The Sunday Times is asking children to rate their school meals – and you could win a prize. All you have to do to take part is to write a review of your school dinner – it can be as short as a sentence or as long as a page. Join in via this page. There’s also space for parents to write in and give their feelings about school dinners.

Full terms and conditions are here. It’s open to UK residents aged 7-18 – under 16’s need to ask their parent or guardian’s permission to enter. Open now, closing date is 5th May 2013.

The top school dinner review will be published in The Sunday Times and will win the chance to have a free lunch for the writer and their family at the restaurant of top chef Bruno Loubet in London, including a tour of the kitchen and a specially-designed ‘child-focused’ menu. Six runners up will receive a copy of one of Jamie Oliver’s cook books.
