Unwilling to eat their school’s revamped health menu, two Yorkshire teen-agers begged their mother for the unhealthy food they like. Now four mothers are selling (at cost) 50 to 60 meals a day, passed through the school fence, to students at Rawmarsh Comprehensive School.
The parents claim they are taking action because pupils are turning up their noses at what they describe as “overpriced, low-fat rubbish”.
Four of them are using a supermarket trolley to make daily runs with fish and chips, pies, burgers, sandwiches and fizzy drinks from local takeaways.
There are markets in everything, says New Economist.
