More kids having school dinners

There has been a big rise in the number of children having school dinners in Gloucestershire.

Last year 7,000 meals were being served up every day in the county's schools, but now that figure has gone up to 8,600 meals a day.

The rise is being put down to a better menu, using locally sourced vegtables and meat and improved school kitchens.

A survey of primary school pupils has also found 73% think the meals are healthy, a 20% rise from a survey down last year and 66% like the taste of the food, up 18%.
