Crisp sarnies are set to replace hot school meals in Welsh schools.
Schools say that they have been forced to cut costs due to cuts in funding.
Headteacher Brian Leathercrotch told WalesOnCraic:
“We’ve been getting less and less money from whoever gives us money and we’ve been having to cut corners all over the shop. In my school alone, I’ve had to lay off all members of teaching staff and it’s just me here now. I’ve had to look long and hard at the food budget and figured that I can only afford to give kids crisp sandwiches for lunch. It’s no bad thing – I used to love them as a kid and we can easily fill up the children’s bellies full for less than 50p each.”
One parent said:
“Yeah. Got no problem with that bruv. That’s all I ever eat anyway.”
