School Meals - Primary
National regulations for school meals in Scotland changed in April 2021. The changes are to help reach the Scottish Dietary Goals and to minimise the risk to the health of children and young people. By limiting the amount of red and red processed meat; reducing the intake of fat, sugar and salt; and increasing fibre, fruit and vegetables we’ll get closer to those goals.
How much do school meals cost?
All children are eligible for free school meals until they reach P6. Meals from P1-P5 are available automatically. From P6, school meals can be purchased online and from the school. Information regarding the roll out of free school meals to the remaining primary school year groups (P6-P7) will be provided when available
