This was said Friday in Luanda by Education minister, Cândida Teixeira, stressing that the  initiative aims at promoting school feeding programmes linked to local production to ensure quality education and lifelong learning.

Speaking at the ceremony, ahead of Africa Day for School Feeding, the minister said that the Angolan Executive intends to create and boost national school feeding policy as a means to promote children's development.

The minister quoted the Presidential Decree 138/13, which regulates the implementation of school meals.

She said the method of providers should be individualised due to diversity of habits and custom of each community.

It is an inter-school action involving pupils from primary, first cycle and secondary schools, in order to adapt them to a new way of life, providing quality of life and well-being, she stressed.

The initiative symbolises the African continent's commitment to mobilise a  governance policy environment for children and young people and establish public policies for healthy school feeding.

The date was set by the African Union to recognise school feeding as crucial to social development, with multiple benefits for students.
