The Ilkeston school canteen in Derbyshire has undergone a facelift and to coincide with the new look, has created a new menu.

Parents and school children had the final say on what went on the new menu.

Kate Le Prevost, from the school, said: "It's really important that pupils eat a healthy meal and the school wanted to make sure there was one on offer every day.

"I'd say about 60% of the students have a school meal so it was important they had their say on what's served up.

"We had some money given to us which has paid for a lick of paint, better facilities, new signage and it's allowed new menus to be developed.

"Students seem to be enjoying the changes so far and parents approve too."
