Dimbleby and Vincent were awarded MBEs for their help in creating the School Food Plan.
Since the plan's publication in July 2013, schools have changed their food culture, introducing compulsory cooking lessons and new school food standards. School lunches have also been made free for five, six and seven-year-olds.
“Writing and helping to implement the School Food Plan was a massive privilege and a character-building task. This recognition is a tribute to all of the people who work hard every day to provide health, pleasure and improved attainment to our children. Let’s all keep going," said Vincent.
Also picking up an MBE was Helen Dhaliwal, co-founder and director of Red Hot World Buffet, awarded for services to the hospitality industry.
