All food and drink that is served in our schools must meet the nutritional standards as specified within the Schools (Health Promotion & Nutrition) (Scotland) Act 2007.
The standards set for food outwith the school lunch support the principles of a whole school approach to healthy eating. All schools have reviewed and changed the food and drink they currently serve within their morning break service and tuckshops.
Most primary schools in Clackmannanshire operate a Milk Scheme.
Parents can choose to opt in to the scheme and pay 21p per day which allows their child to have milk at morning break. This is in addition to the milk provided at lunch time, which is included in the lunch meal price.
Many schools are linking the Milk Scheme with the development of healthy tuckshops to provide a healthy option at morning break.
