School Food Trust will report next month

The School Food Trust will make recommendations to the Government next month on vending machines, breakfast clubs and morning snacks.

The trust, set up to advise the Government and education authorities on how to improve school meals, will deliver its recommendations to schools minister Jackie Smith after taking evidence from experts including the Soil Association, local authority caterers and the British Dental Association.

Paul Kelly, corporate affairs director at Compass Group and chairman of the subcommittee on school food other than lunch, said: "We've taken a broad range of advice on board that will complement the recommendations made by (forerunner body) the School Meals Review Panel."

\* Applications for the role of chief executive of the School Food Trust are now closed. Mark Perfect, a civil servant who set up the Government's Youth Justice Board, is the interim boss. A decision is due in the next month.
