Following the Government's announcement that every child at infant school in England will receive a free school meal from next September, ITV News viewers have been giving their views on social media:
All children should get free school dinners until they are 18 unless the parents opt out.
Good nutrition, table manners, and the social side of eating a meal together is missed in many households these days and should be part of education, not a profit making business.
Why do we want kids fed at school? The meals are of poor quality, nutritionally poor and another step to the state taking over from parents.
I would love to see all school children get a good balanced meal. It's been proven that it helps with the learning process (amongst other things).
And if it's given to all children then there is no distinction between those who can afford it and those who can't.
Every child at infant school in England will receive a free school meal from next September, Nick Clegg announced today.
The policy fits in with what the Lib Dems have been trying to get across - that the party are having an effect in the coalition.
