Responding to the National Food Strategy review suggesting that free school meals should be extended to every household receiving Universal Credit, Liberal Democrat Education spokesperson Layla Moran said:
"The Government must waste no time in acting on these recommendations. We know that giving school children a hot, healthy meal at lunchtime greatly improves their health, behaviour and results.
"The Liberal Democrats are proud to have introduced free school meals in government and have long been calling for them to be extended to more pupils.
"We need to invest in giving every child the best start in life as we come out of this crisis."
