Boring dinners ‘boost chip shops’ – really?

Healthy but boring school dinners could be encouraging children to buy their lunch from chip shops instead, a head teachers’ leader has warned.

Mick Brookes, general secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers, criticised a regime of "gastronomic Puritanism" at its annual conference.

Comment: Although I was the the original founder of this movement in 1980s as a Chairman of School Governors in the first school where my daughters went in Milton Keynes, I must give Jamie unequivocal and heartfelt credit for taking this august issue to No 10 and getting funding for it.
For someone (who perhaps has never cooked a family dinner or understands nutrition and future economic intelligence of this nation) to discredit this public health initiative simply because he as the Union Rep could not get a better dig at the Governmment or as a parent is too negligent to coach his own children in what is and how to prepare better nutritionally beneficial meal on a shoe-strings (for those cash strapped uni young people) is blatantly against the public health debate and ought to be lambasted for his uninvited and unwanted and unnecessary and unintelligent bark.
