Paul McCartney calls for meat to no longer be mandatory in England’s school meals

Sir Paul McCartney and his daughters Stella and Mary have joined a call to change guidance that makes it mandatory to serve fish, meat and dairy in England’s school meals.

The McCartneys, founders of Meat-Free Monday, want to see schoolchildren given more opportunities to choose climate-friendly vegan meals.

They have signed a letter to the education secretary, Gavin Williamson, which has been written as part of the consultation process for the National Food Strategy, a landmark review of Britain’s food system.

That strategy is an opportunity to revise School Food Standards, which make it mandatory to serve fish, meat and dairy, and replace them with nutritional guidelines “that allow schools to be more flexible”.
