If you can remember anything from your time at daycare way back when, the food you ate there probably didn’t make the cut. Between the bland pasta and regular sandwiches, daycare food isn’t always worth remembering.
Here’s just a taste of what the royal four-year-old will be chowing down at school this year — and we won’t blame you if you get a bit jealous.
To start, Prince George and his peers get to sip on some soup, which will be paired with freshly baked bread. The kids can then choose a main dish that changes each day. Meat eaters, for instance, can have a drool-worthy meal, like lamb ragout with garlic and fresh herbs, organic grated cheese with baton carrots and cucumber as well as fibre-rich whole wheat pasta.
Vegetarians can opt to have a vegetable-based dish instead, like three bean ratatouille or layers of baked courgette, halloumi and beetroot.
There’s even a fish alternative to each day’s meal. Fresh salmon fillet with salsa verde or smoked mackerel on a bed of puy lentils, anyone?
It’d be hard not to look forward to school with dishes like these on the menu.
Lunch will then conclude with a gourmet dessert, like baked Portuguese egg custard tarts with strawberries or steamed jam and coconut sponge with organic custard.
The school’s website states that the menu will change with the seasons, and that lighter food will be served during warmer days, and more substantial meals will be served once the colder weather kicks in.
Clearly, the hardest part of each day for Prince George is going to be choosing what to eat.
