Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has announced that every infant in England will receive a free school lunch from September 2014.
The announcement follows a pilot scheme which was carried out in schools across the country, including St Godric's RC Primary in Durham.
Mr Clegg says the scheme will save parents more than £400 a year.
