  Scottish council proposes year-round meals plan for pupils

North Lanarkshire Council has submitted proposals for children from low-income families to be provided with school meals every day of the year.

As reported by the BBC, the Food 365 programme would ensure every child is fed on the 175 days of the year when lunches are not served in school.

The proposals will be discussed by councillors at a meeting of the education committee on 20 February.
