Welsh Assembly spokesman: 'We have not mentioned Marmite in our guidance. In terms of toppings for toast we indicate these are and optional and where required a low-fat polyunsaturated spread should be used and similarly a reduced sugar jam.'
Marmite spokesman: 'It does contain salt and it is important only small quantities are used for taste. But it is not harmful, and only a small amount is required to make toast tasty for children.'
Head teacher: 'I am aware Marmite is not on the menu but I have no input into the content of the meals.'
The language is dead, deader than my desire to eat toast spread with 'low-fat polyunsaturated spread' and 'a reduced sugar jam'.
