FIFE Council has been celebrating 30 years of National Schools Meal Week with catering staff and pupils. 

Councillors have been highlighting the work of catering staff who provide nutritious choices daily for children in schools across Fife.

All children in P1-P5 can receive a free school meal, with some pupils in P6 and P7, and at high school, also eligible.

Councillor Cara Hilton, spokesperson for education, said: “Our menus provide a balanced diet over the week and there really is something for all tastes, whether you have children with special dietary requirements or children who just prefer a plainer option.

“As well as a range of cooked meals, there are healthy packed-lunch options – filled rolls, sandwiches and wraps.  A Fife school lunch provides at least one third of the daily nutritional requirements of pupils.

“We’ll continue to work hard to make sure that children and young people have access to healthy and nourishing meals so that they are fully able to learn, play, and engage with their peers and communities."
