We know that maintaining a healthy diet is linked to a happy and active lifestyle. By eating a school meal provided by East Dunbartonshire Council’s School Meals Service your child is guaranteed a balanced nutritious meal to keep them healthy and alert throughout the school day. 

The meals are freshly cooked on a daily basis by our skilled staff who care about food and your child’s wellbeing. Our staff will help your child to make balanced choices. The meals meet the Scottish Government’s nutritional regulations. 

Any Special diets or allergies should be discussed with the school. 

Meal prices are reviewed annually. Please contact the School to be advised of the current price.

Only those children whose parents receive income support or income based job seekers allowance (and child tax credit were qualifying income criteria has been met) will be entitled to free milk. Milk may however, be available for purchase in the school during the lunch period. 

At Mosshead Primary School lunches are provided in the cafeteria. Children should pay for this with cash on the day. Children not buying from the cafeteria, but remaining on school premises during lunch time, should bring a sensible packed lunch. Children are not permitted to bring glass bottles or cans of fizzy juice. These children also eat in the cafeteria where supervision is provided by support staff and a member of the SLT. After lunch is finished all children have the opportunity to play in the school grounds.
