Observer Food Monthly | Life and style |

Observer Food Monthly | Life and style | Yvonne was interviewed by The Observer Food Monthly last week. As it's the school summer holidays and Yvonne was down in Beaulieu she had to conduct the interview actually in the forest, away from the house and the inevitable cacophony and chaos caused by grandparents and children shouting at each other. There's always a race to get to the phone before Grandpa answers it and shouts 'who are you?' (He's a trifle deaf) 'No - never heard of you!' and they hang up thinking it's a wrong number.

Luckily many journalists work from home these days and are also similarly precariously trapped in the same blighted 'sandwich generation' juggling caring for both parents and children.

The lure of overseas speaking engagements gets ever more attractive escape route via the legitimate excuse of 'work'. Bulgaria and a conference on antioxidants looms seductively.

ConDems Question School Nutrition

Jamie Oliver and Nutritionists furious: Junk Food Back in Schools:

Following the Con-Dems confusion over whether they will or won't condemn school milk, free school meals, nutritional standards for school meals London Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston was on 3 Counties BBC Radio this morning to discuss what she thought was the most important health focus for schools.

"Allowing junk foods and ditching new nutritional guidelines is a much more worrying backward step by the Government than the furore over free milk. There was still more work to be done on in improving school meals so it's worrying to hear that the ConDems have condemned nutrition standards in schools"
