Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 20 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what conclusions were reached by the short-life working group review of nutrition standards in school meals, and what subsequent action was taken in light of these.

Answered by: John Swinney 3 April 2018

The Technical Working Group I set up to review the current school food regulations presented their interim report to me late last year. Following targeted stakeholder engagement, with local authority caterers, the final recommendations will be published in Spring 2018 along with the formal online consultation on proposed changes to the school food regulations.
