Lots more to come ...

I mentioned the Lib-Dem/SNP approved '10p rise in school meals' a few days ago ... well, it finally seems to have attracted a bit of press attention.

That 10p increase represents:

- over a full 6% rise for Primary School meals
- a near 5% rise for Secondary School meals

And it really does seem to me that such inflation-busting increases are completely at odds with efforts to promote and encourage healthy eating.

Sadly, given the opaqueness of last weeks three-year budget, I expect a lot more of this to come :-((
