Comment posted Lochgilphead primary pupil’s internet exposure of poor school meals goes viral by Robert Wakeham.
To some extent this whole discussion is academic in terms of Lochgilphead joint campus, because a significant number of the older pupils are to be seen in the town at lunchtime refuelling on chips – so presumably opting out of school meals. I suppose this might be a reflection of the school food not being junky enough, or being too junky?

- This question of available choice, when related to the tight budget for school meals, doesn’t add up; if we believe the council’s defence as stated on the BBC today then it’s very difficult to understand how their standard of food choice, variety, quality – and resultant wastage – is possible within their budget. Or were the council claims aspirational rather than factual? (after all, there’s apparently insufficient space in the Lochgilphead campus to enable all the pupils to eat) – perhaps the much vaunted no-profit-public-private-design-build philosophy assumes that a certain proportion of the school roll is absent every day, and they miscalculated?
- There’s a third photo in the Daily mail story that looks a bit healthier than the two pictures that have the limelight, so is the menu quality too uneven from day to day, or are kids free to select more – or less – healthy combinations from a wider menu?
- Has producing school meals at the Lochgilphead joint campus been privatised or is it still directly managed by the Education Department?
- Who – I wonder – in the Education Department would be best qualified to explain the difference between the meals in these photos and the meal on the ‘Eatwell plate’ in the ‘Healthy Hub’ section of the Lochgilphead Joint Campus website?
