"Jordanian authorities will start distributing food rations to Palestinian refugee children at schools run by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) on 12 October. This is part of a programme to help cushion pupils from soaring food prices.
UNRWA spokesman Matter Saqer in Amman told IRIN the move would have a positive impact on children’s educational achievement in poverty-stricken areas.
Each school will get food twice a week - enough for all the children. No students will be allowed to take any of the food home after school."
When I was little, the school used to give us "chocolat vitamine", small tablets of while chocolate with vitamins and minerals.
