Since December 2010, the UK and USA have been sharing examples of policy and practices in promoting healthy eating in schools.

With similar challenges and successes on both sides of the Atlantic, both wanted to find a way to raise awareness of the importance of good nutrition amongst children and foster healthy eating habits both at home and at school – and so, International School Meals Day emerged. On Friday, 8 March 2013, schools in the UK and the USA celebrated the first ever International School Meals Day by promoting healthy living through the education environment. In 2014, we held another successful International School Meals Day.
