The impact has created a food revolution among school children, with 76% of six -16 year olds claiming to be ‘taste connoisseurs.’ Seasoning such as herbs, spices and garlic are also becoming more popular. 

The survey by Colman’s found that 52% of children are often disappointed with mums’ meals, saying the food is bland and full of boring ingredients. A third of parents are worried that their cooking skills don’t live up to the standard set by the master chefs. 

This comes as a report by snack manufacturer Feasters revealed that school dinners cost more than an average working lunch in London. 60% of teens spend £3.00 or more on their daily lunch compared to London workers paying just £2.74.

Even more surprising is the fact that a basic school lunch of jacket potato and beans, with a soft drink, can cost school children a massive £2.84.
