Hello and welcome to ‘Buying Food and Drink Beyond the School Gate’ which we hope will bring to life research undertaken with a group of secondary school children. The aim of the project was to listen to young people and find out what they want from their food and drink at school and what motivates them to go beyond the school gate when making choices about what they eat.


We hope you enjoy this video which highlights some key aspects of the research. The pages within this site will give you further information about the findings of the research with links to additional resources which we hope you will find useful and equip you with the facts to help you make choices….and changes!
