Online Survey: School Meals Survey - Parents

East Ayrshire school meals provide healthy, tasty options for all hungry learners. The four-week menus are designed to offer children a variety of nutritious lunches that include familiar favourites, as well as tempting new tastes to try. Meals are freshly cooked in schools each day, using seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Feedback is important to us and we would like to know how much your child/children like school meals. Completing this questionnaire will help us to understand and improve the School Meal Catering Service.

There are 13 questions.
