Perhaps only a few things can truly show the amount of appreciation the government and it's
citizens have for their children, and one of them is shown by the content of any student's
plate. Much like a mirror, it would reflect the level of authoritative responsibility, the customs
and mentality of a country, the level of economic development and quality of life.
Regardless to what said plate contains - a simple pea soup, or a meat dish, there are those
who relentlessly take it upon themselves to ensure the quality and availability of this food at
schools. These people are the parents of students. They are the first people to know what
their children eat at school, being the place where they spend the majority of their time. This
isn't a matter of little importance, as it's a crucial component impacting the health of a child,
and consequently their very life.
Some school student populations are more prone to obesity, others to malnourishment.
Each country has its own issues. We are certain that school feeding can be used as a
powerful tool to tackle such problems on a global scale.
Parents must not only understand and acknowledge the importance of maintaining a proper
diet at schools, but also take an active participation themselves. In some places such as
Armenia, the parents help out with the groceries, and taking charge of controlling the state of
the school canteen is becoming a more common practice all over Russia.
Mothers and fathers no longer want to stand aside once the health of their children is concerned. In order for our children to develop into healthy, wise, kind, and happy individuals it is not only important to outline the objectives and focus on the big plans, but also to take some concrete steps towards a reachable and understandable goal. For instance - ensuring that children receive nutritious and delicious food at school. We are a relatively small noncommercial organization from an ancient city of Yaroslavl' in Russia, that has set a goal of involving the parents in the process of school feeding of their children in an efficient way. While fully acknowledging the qualified individuals in this particular field, we aspire to provide all parents with a tool to have a say in what their children have to eat at schools, as they are their legal representatives. Already having experience in this intricate endeavour, we would not only like to share it with others, but also hear about it from other courageous parents from across the globe.
So let's get started!
