Let's grow school dinners

I was reading with great interest your on-line article 'Schools to be targeted in new food poverty' campaign (Belfast Telegraph, September 6).

Although appreciating the recommendation 'to establish programmes like breakfast clubs and school lunch schemes to improve the situation', I would strongly recommend the construction of small school gardens in which children learn how to produce fresh food at school. Such a move would include educational aspects about plant biology, soil, water, horticulture and so on, and the vegetables and fruits could be eaten by the children at school.

That's the real breakfast and lunch scheme!
