A special event  is being held in Glasgow in early May as part of a “revolution in Scotland’s food culture”

Children’s Food Conference: New Context for School Food, comes in the wake of the launch by the Scottish Government of new guidance called Better Eating, Better Learning (BEBL).

The event, on May 1, aims to help school food and inspire children in Scotland to make good food choices that will continue into adulthood.

BEBL was developed by an expert working group and builds on Scotland’s significant progress over the last ten years.

It places school food at the forefront of a revolution in Scotland’s food culture, and shows how school food and food education can be used to rise to Scotland’s health, environment and educational challenges, through partnership working between children and young people, parents, caterers, teachers, and other stakeholders.

The conference is being held by Children in Scotland, and it will provide valuable information on making healthy eating and lifestyle choices.

A spokesperson said that it will be beneficial to all, specifically; teaching and early years staff, health practitioners, food suppliers, caterers and others involved in supporting children to learn about good food and nutrition.

The event will also provide an opportunity to network, explore issues and share practice.
