School Nutrition Action Committee (SNAC)

What is SNAC?

The School Nutrition Action Committee is a working party of children and adults, formed to help review our school food culture and develop and implement an action plan. It is a way to bring different members of the school community together to make positive changes to our school food environment.



Meet our members!

Autumn 2023

The School Nurtition Action Committee meet every other Thursday lunchtime in the cookery room.


We started off this term by discussing the expectations for representatives when they attend SNAC meetings. We then heard from our Year 6 SNAC Lead who fed back some pupil voice collected by Mrs Mulford regarding the topic of cookery. The feedback was that children wanted:

  • more options of things to cook and eat in school
  • more experiments with food
  • more cooking opportunities
  • a day just for making food


SNAC have taken this feedback onboard and will be having a focus on improving cookery opportunities across the school.


To start their project, they did an audit of equipment available in the cookery room and made a request for some new equipment to be purchased. Here is what they purchased so far!

SNAC representatives then considered ways to make the cookery room more accessible to all ages. They decided to change the labels to include pictures to make it easier for children to find the equipment they need.
