How healthy is your child’s school lunch?

Food poverty campaigner Kathleen Kerridge has called for all UK schools to ban packed lunches as part of a healthy eating campaign.

Some schools in the UK have already banned packed lunches and provide each child with a school lunch.

In a debate about children’s health at London’s City Hall, Kerridge expressed her concern that parents might influence unhealthy eating in other children.

Speaking at the event, Kerridge said: “I don’t think the responsibility for feeding a child at school should ever be given to the parents, because if one child sees another eating a cake and drinking a can of coke they will want it.”

Here are some snacks that feature frequently in children’s packed lunches:

The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation, together with Sheffield University, have published a report warning that our schools are troubled by a culture of high fat and sugary foods being used as rewards’.  They say the problem is uneducated parents who don’t know what healthy alternatives schools are offering their children.

They add, dangerous ignorance about food and nutrition is creating an unhealthy food environment at secondary schools, compromising pupils’ ability to make good food choices.

  2. I run a vape shop submission site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that also advertises CBD product lines. A Calendar month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take away PayPal as a payment method from our vape store website directory. We do not offer for sale CBD products like CBD oil. We only provide web marketing services to CBD companies. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Store and if you take a good peek, you will see that they supply a reasonably substantial series of CBD items, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It emerges that PayPal is applying double standards to different companies. Because of this restriction, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has limited my payment options and currently, I am seriously reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have talked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is completely unlawful and inequitable as it ought to be applying a systematic standard to all firms. I am yet to get in touch with one more legal representative from a US law firm in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. In the meantime, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
