In the 1980s [[Margaret Thatcher]]'s [[Conservative Party (UK)|Conservative]] government ended entitlement to free meals for thousands of children, and obliged local authorities to open up provision of school meals to competitive tender. This was intended to reduce the cost of local-authority-provided school meals, but caused an enormous drop in the standard of food being fed to children. A 1999 survey by the [[Medical Research Council (UK)|Medical Research Council]] suggested that despite rationing, children in 1950 had healthier diets than their counterparts in the 1990s, with more nutrients and lower levels of fat and sugar.<ref>Derek Gillard, 'Food for Thought: child nutrition, the school dinner and the food industry', [www.dg.dial.pipex.com/educ25.shtml]</ref>
