A TOP Suffolk chef and Ipswich pupils helped turn up the heat on school dinners today as a new lunchtime menu for the county's teenagers was launched.

The Get Real campaign is Suffolk's approach to the government's healthy eating initiative, which aims to introduce nutritional standards in all high schools.

Ugur Vata, owner of The Galley restaurant in Ipswich joined pupils from Chantry High School to mark the start of the project, which ties in with the forthcoming School Meals Week.

Chantry was selected as the venue for the launch because it has recently had a refurbishment of its canteen area, with new service counters which are more attractive, practical and will enable more students to be served in less time.

The canteen also creates a more welcoming environment for students and staff, while menus and the dining area have also been re-designed.

The revamp was carried out to meet government targets set out in its healthy schools plan, which encourages pupils to sit down and eat a nutritious meal with their classmates.
