Brimington Junior School in Chesterfield, Derbyshire will have its dining hall transformed as part of a national competition prize worth around £10,000.
Pupils helped secure the prize after making a film to set out the school's bid to turn its canteen nightmare into a dream dining room.
The competition was run by the Children's Food Trust, buying group YPO and Elygra Marketing Services.
Darshana Dholakia, Children's Food Trust director of marketing and communications and judge for the competition, said: "Children tell us that where they eat is actually more important to them than what they're eating.
"Put another way, if we invested as much time into creating great spaces for eating in school as we do into cooking tasty, healthy food for children, we'd see even more kids wanting to give healthier school food a try.
The school will now get to choose £6,500 worth of new furniture and accessories from YPO to create their new-look dining space, plus a £3,000 package of marketing kit and customer service training from Elygra Marketing Services.
