jamie's progress

Some good news on the school dinners issue. The Guardian writes that:

"The government today promised £220m to bring the minimum spent on school dinners to 50p.
The education secretary, Ruth Kelly, also promised to reintroduce guidelines on nutritional standards in school meals for the first time in 20 years."

Kelly predicts "a really dramatic increase in the quality of food in school dinners that are served, particularly in those areas where they are not currently serving good school dinners at the moment." You'd hope so. Apparently Jamie Oliver has welcomed the plans but pledged to remain 'the voice of the dinner lady'.
