School Meals – January 2022

From Thursday 6 January 2022, all primary 5 pupils will be able to receive a universal school meal and it won’t cost parents a penny.

P5s will join P1, P2, P3 and P4 in receiving a universal school meal as part of the Scottish Government’s expansion of healthy meals to all primary pupils.

New school meal menus will also go live in January, providing children with some of the food they love while still keeping within the new food and drink in schools legislation.

Thanks to parents and pupil feedback, some favourites returning will be:

  • Chicken poppers
  • Sandwich options
  • Hot dogs
  • Vegetarian sausage rolls

Vegan and vegetarian options will be available, and we will continue to provide medical diets as required.

School meals still need to be balanced to ensure they meet the new food regulations, but children will get their favourites as part of the new menu, just not all the time.

The new school meal menus will go live on the council’s website by Thursday 23 December (once schools close). Check for more details.
