MENU & PRICES

NUTRITION

FEEDBACK

The menu contains dishes that are firm favourites with children and suit the spring/summer season. The price of a 2-course primary school meal with bread, salad and a cold drink remains at £1.90. Given all the positive changes that we continue to make, we hope that you agree this is excellent value for both money and your child’s health.

All of our menus meet the Scottish Government’s legislative Food and Nutrition standards. We help pupils to eat the recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day by serving fresh seasonal produce and working with schools to organise special Veginvasion events. We also choose locally grown vegetables when they are available. More information on special lunchtime events is available on East Lothian Council’s website.

Your views on the services we provide are very important to us. If you or your child has any comments or suggestions about school meals please let us know. Thank you for supporting East Lothian Council’s school meals service.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS Your child may be entitled to receive free school meals if you or your partner claims benefits. You can find more detailed information on East Lothian Council’s website
