Description:

In October 2002 the Fresh Fruit in Schools scheme was launched. The scheme has its roots in the public health strategy, Investing for Health. This strategy, developed by a cross-departmental group (the Ministerial Group on Public Health) and launched in 2002, provides a framework for action to improve health and wellbeing which focuses in particular on the sources of good health and on inequalities in health. This report presents a summary of the evaluation of the Fresh Fruit in Schools pilot scheme. It examines how the scheme was implemented, including the distribution of the fruit to schools and within schools to the classroom, and assesses the impact on the teachers and schools involved, changes in the children's fruit consumption, the broader impact of the scheme on children, parents and siblings and lessons for the future.
