3How did we get chosenWe applied by writing a letter to school council and explaining why we wanted to be part of school food ambassadors.
4What was the first thing we did? We signed the contractWe organised our foldersWe decided on roles within the groupWe organised the monitoring rotaWe agreed on the monitoring sheetsWe meet most Wednesdays at 12:30We feed back through school councilWe made a booklet and a display board
6Why we wanted to be a school food ambassador Max: to make the school a healthier place and the lunch times better.Jaya: I want all the children to be happy with their dinners.Holly: to make the school a healthier place and the children are satisfied with the food they are eating.
7What was the food like before school food ambassadors Mash potato was instant mashThe carrots were cooked too muchThe food selections were more repetitiveThe dinners were cold and children throw most of their dinner awayWe had dinner bandsThere was no salad bar
8Changes we have already made We have changed the rota in the dinner hallThere is more choice of menuCan now have more raw vegetables from the salad bar and other optionsBecause we don’t have dinner bands children can now choose on the dayReception and nursery still have bands so parents can choose for themMore children are choosing school dinners
9The kitchen staffThe staff are really friendly and they answer our questions.
10Our next stepsEvaluate our monitoring sheets and discuss feedback with cook and head teacher.Try and have class tables and see how well they look after their table and clear up after themselves.The table that is the cleanest get to choose the CD for the following week to play in the dinner hallKeep checking the food is healthy and the children are enjoying it
