School meals

Saving...

In line with the Scottish Government's 'Hungry for Success' policy, Fife Council provides tasty, healthy meals to young Fifers. All of our meals conform to national nutritional standards which you can read or download on the Scottish Government website.

The national nutritional standards demand that a Fife school lunch provides at least one third of the daily nutritional requirements of pupils. Our menus provide nutritious choices that ensure a balanced diet over the week.

A primary school meal costs only £2.20 per day and you can view/download the menu in English, Polish, Romanian, Urdu and Mandarin.

High schools have a cafeteria-style service, where pupils can choose from a variety of tasty and healthy items. Please encourage your child to vary their selections.

Special diets
Should your child have a specific dietary requirement e.g. a specific food that they cannot eat for health or religious reasons, please complete the online Specific Dietary Requirement Form. The school cook and manager will arrange to meet with you to discuss how best to fulfil your child's needs.

If your child prefers a vegetarian diet there is a selection of suitable dishes on the menu every day and you don't need to complete a Specific Dietary form.

Fife school meals do not use any ingredients containing nuts but some products may be made in a non-nut-free environment - please check recipes for more details.

We are committed to reducing the impact we have on the environment and are trying to reduce or eliminate packaging and single-use plastics where we can.
