    Following concern about the quality of children’s diets and the contribution of school meals,
    statutory National Nutritional Standards were reintroduced in April 2001. These standards set
    out the frequency with which school caterers must provide items from the main food groups
    (starchy foods, milk and dairy, fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and alternative sources of
    protein). They apply to all maintained schools in England.
    The Department for Education and Skills (DfES) and the Food Standards Agency (FSA)
    commissioned a survey to assess compliance with the standards and to measure food
    consumption in secondary school pupils. This report presents the findings from a nationally
    representative sample survey of 79 secondary schools in England which provided information
    about catering practice and food provision at lunchtime, and information on the food selections
    of 5 695 secondary school pupils age 11-18 years.
