I refer the hon. Member to the reply given previously for question numbers 202636 and 202637 posed in April 2008. The figures included in the press notice referred to by the hon. Member were a suggestion for the amount that might be needed to be spent on ingredients to deliver a tasty and nutritious meal. Subsequent research found that the vast majority of local authorities were already spending this. The latest figures will be announced by the School Food Trust when it publishes the results of its 2008 annual survey in July.
The nutritional standards for school food make sure provision is consistent across maintained primary and secondary schools.
