Healthy school dinners for Spanish kids

SPANISH schools are to benefit to the tune of €11.5 million thanks to an EU initiative to promote healthy eating among schoolchildren.

The Management Committee for Fresh Fruit and Vegetables has approved the distribution of EU funds for the 2015/2016 academic year, with Spain to receive €11.5 million, adding to the €3.7 million already provided by the government.

The ‘Fruits and vegetables in schools consumption scheme 2015/2016’ aims to reach around 1.5 million school children in 6,500 schools, with the goal of reversing the downward trend in the consumption of these products.

The main aim of the programme is to reduce child obesity problems and encourage healthy eating habits.
