VOLUNTARY CODE OF PRACTICE FOR DRINKS PROVIDED IN SCHOOLS

The Children’s Food Trust believes that drinks provided in schools should offer pupils nutritional benefit (including hydration). They believe that rules about school drinks should be as simple as possible for schools to follow. This is in keeping with the School Meals Review Panel (SMRP), which recommended that schools should serve only plain drinks (water, milk, fruit/vegetable juice, fermented milk), or combinations of these. The Trust’s voluntary code of practice for drinks provided in schools encourages the provision of healthier drinks that are unsweetened and additive free wherever possible.
