  School dinners are "cheap muck"
Updated 06 October 2003, 08.37
School dinners are being attacked again
School dinners have been called "cheap muck off a truck" by a group who want us to eat better food.

The Soil Association - who want to make organic food more popular - say the government only spends 35p per meal.

Their report says the meals aren't healthy enough to meet the government's own standards on how good food should be.

They're worried that too many cheap ingredients are being used instead of more expensive fresh ones.

Millions needed to make things better

Things are already getting better for kids in Scotland after the government there agreed to spend 63.5m over three years on improving school meals.

The Soil Association want schools in England and Wales to be improved too, and want to see more than 200m spent to make food better.
