An investigation into the quality of school meals being served in Dundee primary schools is nearly complete.
The standard of meals has come under the spotlight since a Dundee woman published a photo of the burnt sausage roll and beans served to her niece at Ancrum Road Primary.
Lochee Labour councillor Charlie Malone then said he had been inundated with complaints from parents about the food their children are receiving.
However, he said there had also been praise for meals served at other schools, prompting him to voice concerns some schools were receiving better meals than others.
That was denied by Tayside Contracts, which said all food was prepared centrally and pupils were able to pre-order food from four options.
However, Tayside Contracts did launch an investigation into the food being served in schools.
West End Liberal Democrat councillor Fraser Macpherson said he had now been told by Paul Clancy, director of Dundee City Council’s children and families services, that the investigation will conclude soon.
Mr Macpherson said: “I received complaints from parents following the serving to pupils of Ancrum Road what I consider to be an unacceptable lunch. Pupils are entitled to a high quality nutritious meal every day.
“There is no excuse for anything less. I think it would be helpful if elected members were given copies of meal menus Tayside Contracts provide and assurances and evidence of a consistent approach in terms of meal choice, meal size and quality across the city.
“Mr Clancy has agreed to do so and give councillors the detail of the outcome into the investigation about what happened at Ancrum Road Primary.”
