New interactive menus for pupils and parents have been introduced by Aberdeenshire Council.

The new service means pupils, parents, carers and education staff will now be able to go online and learn more about the meals being served to youngsters at school.

The council’s school catering team has developed the menus with links to recipe pages which include photographs and information related to food allergies.

The online service adds to the comprehensive information that people can access about the school catering service on the council website such as free school meals, medically prescribed diets, multi-lingual menus and school menu leaflets.

Catering manager Allan Doig said: “It is important that parents and the public can access details of the range of food available to pupils in Aberdeenshire schools.

“The interactive menus will help parents assist children to make informed meal choices. Many parents have asked for our recipes and now have the opportunity to access these online to try out at home.”
