Primary school pupils will only be served chips or roast potatoes once a week, if new proposals for school dinners go ahead.

The amount of red meat products like bacon or cooked ham that pupils will be offered will also fall.

That is according to Department of Education (DE) plans to introduce healthier school dinners.

The department is consulting on the changes which could cost up to £2.4m if adopted.

The nutritional standards for school lunches, and other food and drinks in schools in Northern Ireland, date from 2007.

Education Minister Peter Weir said the standards had to change to reflect up-to-date guidance and research on healthy eating.
