Five pupils said that they preferred the menu now, and all five of the pupils agreed on the fact that ‘they are tastier and healthier now’.
There were two questions that all eight of the students unanimously agreed on however, one of these questions was ‘Do you think the government should have a say over what is on the school menu?’, where all eight said ‘no’, the government should have no say over what is on the menu in school canteens.
The other question that they agreed on unanimously was ‘Do you think our school councils should agree on the school menu?’, when asked this questions all eight students said ‘yes’, the school council should have a say in the school menu.
