1.3 million more young children now receiving free school meals

1.3m schoolchildren across England are now enjoying a free school lunch thanks to Liberal Democrats in government.

Figures out earlier this month show that the policy has had a very high uptake in its first three months, with a total of more than 1.6m children enjoying a school meal every lunchtime.


This can save up to £400 a year on per child on the cost of providing a packed lunch. The policy has the dual impact of saving money for families and helping boost learning for children.

Our candidate, Ros Kayes says: "The success of this policy shows that the Liberal Democrat influence in government has had really positive effects for families."
