Cornish parents are assured children's dietary needs will be considered as compulsory school meals are brought in.

St Marys Catholic Primary in Bodmin has sent out letters saying the free lunches start next term.

It is for all Key Stage One pupils and means bringing in a packed lunch won't be an option anymore.

Parents and children have both been invited into the school to test the new menu.

Andrew Wallis is in charge of children and young people at the council, he said: "What schools may be doing is saying actually everyone gets it so we know 40 people a day will have a school meal, so they can cater for it, when you're saying I will have it or I won't have it it's very difficult to plan because you might not have enough food prepared.

"There is a very robust and strong guidelines which is set by the government, and the nutritional value has to go into school meals, and it actually gives very robust guidelines on what can be served and what cannot be served in a free school meal."
