19 March, 2013 Grand Connaught Rooms, London
The second annual Children’s Food Conference will address the key issues of the day surrounding food in schools and nurseries. Too often, children are hungry: missing breakfast and not getting a hot meal outside of school or in the holidays, and so their education and health are suffering.
Sponsored by Cool Milk:
Through interactive workshops, presentations and an exhibition – we will look at how we can help prevent food poverty through work in schools, nurseries and other places serving food to children.
