A Department for Education spokesperson has responded to the launch of the Evaluation of Universal Infant Free School Meals report by saying: “Good nutrition is closely linked to attainment and this report illustrates how our free school meals programme – backed by £600m funding – is already benefiting 1.4m children across the country, whilst saving their families hundreds of pounds each year.

“We have supported schools by providing £184.5m capital funding to upgrade kitchen and dining facilities, as well as giving extra money to help smaller schools provide these meals.

“This is part of the government’s wider efforts to encourage children of all ages to eat good food that encourages healthy eating for life.”

The report, researched and published by the Educational Policy Institute and funded by LACA, was launched earlier today.
