Junk food which is banned in schools is still being served regularly in nurseries, with some spending just 25 pence a head on meals for children in their care, a new report claims.Disgraceful!
As well as the low nutritional content of the meals, the report warns that too few nursery workers are trained to deal with children with food allergies, which could lead to dangerous situations and even death.Scandalous!
The report found that some nurseries regularly served up food banned or heavily restricted in primary and secondary schools, including chocolate, crisps, cakes, biscuits, sweets, burgers and chips.Outrageous!
And who are these brave people, who have worked so hard and so selflessly to bring us this utterly unbiased, independent report on the shocking state of nursery school food provision, without fear or favour, expecting no reward?
