    School meals have apparently improved from what you might be able to remember from when you were a kid. Although some parents still prefer to send their children to school with a healthy and nutritious packed lunch, some studies have shown that the performance of children at school improves if they eat a hot meal during the day.

    Whether this is due to the quality of food that some parents put in packed lunches is debatable, but the evidence persuaded deputy prime minister Nick Clegg to pledge free school dinners for all six and seven year-olds, despite the fact that the poorest pupils already get free meals.

    If you have a kid who is about to start school, this might sway you towards school dinners. You might like to know that if your child were to contract a serious strain of food poisoning after eating a dodgy school meal, that you might be able to use the services of an injury solicitor in the City of London to sue for compensation on their behalf.

    You’ll need to gather as much evidence as you can if you intend to use an injury solicitor in the City of London to take action against a school after your child has come down with a bout of food poisoning. As food poisoning typically comes on around one to three days after ingestion, it’s likely you won’t be able to get your hands on a sample of the food that your child ate.

    As such, the first thing you’ll need to do will be to get your poorly child to see a medical professional. The doctor you see should take a stool sample to help ascertain what type of bacteria she or he has been infected with. Your injury solicitor in the City of London will be able to use this information as evidence.

    It will help your case immensely if you can get other parents on board. It will be highly likely that other children will also have fallen ill. If you can produce proof that other children who ate the same meal as your child came down with the same ailment, your chances of winning your case could be greatly improved.
