Green Stats

Just heard Sue Kedgley claim in Parliament we need to ban advertising of food in schools as 56,000 pies are sold (I guess a week) but only 4,000 pieces of fruit.

But this got me thinking. If a kid wants a pie for lunch, he has to buy it at school. You don’t eat cold pie from home generally.

However many many parents probably send their kids off to school with an apple or some fruit, so the sales figures may be irrelevant in terms of determining if there is a problem.
