Would the introduction of free school meals for all primary school children lead to better results?

It's not yet clear. A study by Professor Lorraine Dearden of University College London found free school meals led to a slight improvement in attainment but did not improve attendance or pupils' BMI. She said: "We struggled to find the mechanism by which [the improvement in attainment] took place."
