A '''school meal''' (also known as hot lunch{{citation needed|date=February 2014}} or school dinner) is a meal, typically in the middle of the school day, provided to students at school. Trends, nutritional values and economics have influenced menus. Marketing and a push for healthier meals are two major factors which have influenced school meals around the world in the past decade. In recent years, some schools have served breakfasts in the morning before school starts. Only Sweden, Finland and Estonia provide Free school meals to all pupils in compulsory education regardless of their ability to pay.<ref name=http://www.childrensfoodtrust.org.uk >{{cite web|url=http://www.childrensfoodtrust.org.uk/assets/research-reports/school_food_in18countries.pdf | title=The provision of school food in 18 countries | date=July 2008 | first1=Clare | last1=Harper | first2=Lesley | last2=Wood | first3=Claire | last3=Mitchell}}</ref><ref name="Public Meal">{{cite web |title=The Swedish School Meal as Public Meal | url=http://uu.diva-portal.org/smash/get/diva2:544062/FULLTEXT01}}</ref>

In 1944 it was made compulsory for local authorities to provide school dinners, with legal nutritional requirements.

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>

This became a major topic of [[debate]] in 2004 when [[chef]] [[Jamie Oliver]] spearheaded a campaign to improve the quality of school meals. School dinners at state schools during this time had normally been made by outside caterers. The schools sold a lot of deep-fried [[fast-food]] like chips, fried turkey nuggets, pizza and pies. After the programme was shown on [[Channel 4]] (''[[Jamie's School Dinners]]''), sections of the public showed support for the increase of funding for school meals, causing the government to create the [[School Food Trust]]. The topic became a factor in the [[United Kingdom general election, 2005|2005 UK general election]].
