From Mr Graham Dane

Sir: The danger to children's health is even worse than you report ("School dinners can damage your health", 3 November). The "unhealthy" menu - battered fish, creamed potato, baked beans and apple crumble with custard - seems acceptable compared with an unhealthy choice in the school where I teach: a Mars bar, six bags of crisps and a can of fizzy drink.

We have abandoned children's health to balance the books. Parents would (or should) be outraged if they knew what their children ate.

Yours faithfully,

Graham Dane
