  We should have free-range dinners at school
Updated 01 October 2003, 09.00
School canteen
Lilith feels strongly about having more choices at lunch time.

In her report she tells us why she wants to see free-range meals on the menu at school.

"Many people are vegetarians and are concerned with animal rights.

There is also a large percentage of people in Britain who do not want to eat non free-range food.

However, sometimes they have no choice, especially with children when it comes to school dinners.

Bad conditions

Some of them, for many reasons, have to eat school dinners every day.

And eat them in the knowledge that a poor cow has suffered horrendously and hens have been kept in appalling conditions.

Support organic farms

Schools, councils and the government should do something about this.

A free-range option every day is not too much to ask.

It would support organic and free-range farms and if produced locally, support the local economy.

Letter to headmaster

I am one of a group of children at a school in Cambridge who has written a letter to the headmaster and who are encouraging others to do the same.

One of the children who originally had this idea said: 'We really need to try and do something about this. This barbaric treatment of animals cannot continue'.

We await the reply from our headmaster with great interest."
