Obesity campaigners call for more salads and fewer puddings in school
Obesity Action Scotland wants vegetables, soup and salads prioritised over puddings.
School meals should include fewer puddings and more fresh vegetables, according to a report.
Obesity Action Scotland (OAS) said improvements to school meals could play an important part in reducing childhood obesity.
It wants to highlight the issue ahead of the council elections in two weeks' time.
The Scottish government said a review of school food and drink nutritional standards was under way.
OAS is calling on local government election candidates to commit to transform school meals in Scotland "from a feeding culture to an eating culture".
The organisation said it wanted unprocessed or "minimally processed" foods used wherever possible and vegetables, soup and salads prioritised over puddings.
