Lucy said “In Herefordshire, 5470 children will benefit from free school meals. Schools in pilot areas have reported improvements in behaviour and head teachers have said that it has unified their schools with children eating together. This plan will ensure that children eat healthily and will save parents an estimated £430 per child.”
