Breakfast and after school food provision
Food consumed at breakfast and after school clubs can contribute towards pupils overall nutrition and health status. There are also many benefits to providing food before school to help address hunger, improve attendance, attainment, behaviour and cognition.

Food served before and after school must also meet the School Food Standards. You can find more detail of these on our sub-page here.
