An angry mother claimed her daughter’s school lunch “looked like someone stepped in”.
Her daughter attends QE High in Carmarthen, WalesOnline reports.
She said: “My daughter sent me a picture of her lunch at school.
“It was a jacket potato with cheese, but it looked like it had been tossed onto the plate.
“It’s been like this for weeks. She says the only edible thing is the paninis, but by the time her year goes to lunch, there won’t be much left.
“She’s complained a few times and I’ve now resorted to making her packed lunches every day.”
She claimed the school lunches, which are managed by Carmarthenshire Council, look “sticky and like they’re off”.
“My daughter came back from school hungry last week because she said the food was disgusting so she eats me out and at home when she comes back,” the mother added.
The Council said in response: “Now that this has been brought to our attention we will look into the matter.
“If a student feels their food is substandard, please bring it back to the counter.”
The head of a leading wholesaler recently warned that school lunch portion sizes may need to be cut due to rising food costs.
Andrew Selley, managing director of Bidfood, said schools may also need to use cheaper ingredients to counter the rapidly rising prices.
“The situation will lead to some difficult decisions about school meals,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
“Either they will serve smaller portions or use cheaper ingredients, which will not be good for children.”
