School meals in Scotland have undergone a transformation over the past few years due to the ‘Hungry for Success’ initiative which introduced nutritional guidelines for school lunches.
With ‘Hungry for Success’, nutrient standards for school lunches are calculated to ensure that the school lunch provides a third of the daily nutritional requirements of primary and secondary school pupils. The nutrient standards represent the amount of energy (calories) and nutrients required to be provided by an average day’s school lunch.
