Food4Life in schools Award


The Tameside School’s Food4Life Award is co-ordinated and managed by the Children Nutrition Team at the Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust.
The Food4Life schools award is a chance for schools to celebrate and be recognised for good practice around healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. It is given to schools that show a whole school approach to the provision and promotion of healthy food. It also ensures that the food being served in school meets School Food Standards.  Part of the award involves us analysing the menus and making suggestions for alternatives where this is not the case. Schools in the 20% most deprived in Tameside are targeted first, however this award is offered to all schools in Tameside.
