FUEL Study

 [Food Provision, CUlture and Environment in Secondary SchooLs]

Recently we saw the introduction of the FUEL study at SJT which is being carried out by Birmingham University and funded by the National Institute for Health Research.

Eighty students from Years 7, 9 and 10, their parents, key school staff and governors will be taking part. The study started in March 2019 and will run for two years. The aim of the FUEL study is to compare secondary schools legally required to meet the School Food Standards with those that are not legally required to meet the standards. The project will explore what food is provided and how healthy eating is supported in these two groups of schools. The study also aims to assess the dietary intake and dental health of students across the schools involved.

Birmingham University is very grateful for our participation in this project.
