A report in today’s Observer has a doctor blaming academies and free schools for adding to the obesity problem in children. These schools are exempt from the requirement to meet healthy eating standards introduced some years ago and consequently can provide the old staples of chips, burgers and pizza all topped off with a fizzy drink from a machine that contributes to school funds.
It is only fair to point out that it is highly unlikely that any Steiner school is guilty of this sort of culinary barbarism. And now that I come to think of it I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fat anthro – maybe a little pale but not fat. No, the food is likely to be good fresh organic or even biodynamic fare. Biodynamics may be mad but it is not bad.
So lets hear it for Steiner school catering.
Now if only they could be persuaded to stop filling the kid’s heads with junk food for the mind.
