SMILE PROJECT 2021
The Orion is taking part in the SMILE project, which involves introducing a new health-promoting lunch tray, that is divided into sections containing the major food groups and displays child-friendly health and well-being messages.
The tray was developed by a team of registered nutritionists, school cooks, public health professionals, and the product design team at Middlesex University. Sections are divided according to portion size guidelines for children (Caroline Walker Trust).
