COUNCILLORS had a trip down memory lane when they sat down to a traditional school dinner.
The special meal, the same as being handed out in schools across the borough, gave councillors an insight into the award-winning school meals that primary and secondary pupils get to enjoy every day.
School meals are better than ever with locally-sourced, high-tasty, nutritious and healthy meals.
Coming in at just over £2 for two courses, they represent good value, and are free to children in reception, Years 1 and 2 and families on benefits.
Solihull Council cabinet member for children, education and skills, Councillor Ken Meeson said: “It is fantastic to enjoy first-hand the high quality and nutritious meals our children are eating at school every day.
“Food is a fundamental part of health.
“So providing tasty, nutritious meals at school means children are more likely to grow up thinking healthy eating is tasty eating.
“Helping them establish the habits to become healthier, happier adults.”
