Children to get free school dinners

14 April 2011, 08:44

Southwark Council is giving free school meals to every pupil in the borough to stop poorer children feeling like they're getting special treatment.

It's costing £8m but the council reckons it'll also reduce obesity as youngsters are guaranteed one healthy meal a day.

It comes as the borough says it's trying to save £34m as part of all the spending cuts.
