Innovative reward programme to increase school meal take up & healthy choices

Barking and Dagenham’s unique reward scheme helps to encourage the take up of school meals and healthy food choices. Reward points are earned every time a healthy school meal is eaten (primary) or healthy items of food and drink are bought (secondary).

Over the last year, the scheme increased the amount of healthy items of food and drink consumed in the borough’s schools by over 500,000.
