FUMING parents have lashed out at a school after claiming it served their kids “vile” dinners “not big enough to feed a four year old”.
Mums and dads claim the “b****y awful” grub is so bad their kids refuse to eat it – leaving them absolutely starving.
The school, Ysgol Dyffryn Taf, in Carmarthenshire, Wales, faced a barrage of complaints after images of meals sold to pupils were shared online.
Pictures appear to show food from the school, including Spaghetti Bolognese that’s floating in juices.
While another image shows the inside of a chicken roll – just one of the meals parents have branded as “shocking”.
Fed-up parent Shelley Webb posted the images online after she was outraged over the alleged quality of the meals.
She told WalesOnline: “My daughter has complained about the quality of the food and the size of the portions before but I just thought she was moaning about school dinners in general like a lot of kids do.
“The portion sizes aren’t big enough to feed a four-year-old, never mind teenagers.
“It’s basically one sausage, one scoop of mash, some carrots and cranberry sauce. I think it’s 95p for one fish finger!”
Shelley added the meals – which cost £2.60 each – are also “inedible”.
The post – viewed hundreds of times – sparked a flurry of other parents to express their shock at what their little ones are gorging on at school.
After seeing the pictures for the first time, one parent wore: “My kids said they were bad but I didn’t think it was this bad.”
While another claimed: “That’s why my son’s coming home starving.
“He did mention the food was awful but I never imagined it was this bad! Absolutely vile.”
Another mum even said her son had refused to eat the school dinners on offer for the past two weeks.
The post led to other parents sharing similar pictures of their kids’ meals at the school.
Shelley claims some parents are now giving kids sandwiches instead.
She is now calling on the local authority to take action to improve the quality of food being served to pupils.
Carmarthenshire Council, the authority responsible for education and school dinners at Ysgol Dyffryn Taf, has said it is now looking into the matter urgently.
The council’s director of education and children’s services, Gareth Morgans, said: “We are investigating these concerns as a matter of urgency now that it has been brought to our attention and would like to reassure parents that arrangements are in place to address this situation.
“If parents/guardians or pupils have any concerns about the standard of food in Carmarthenshire schools, we would encourage them to contact [email protected].”
