Prince George is back to school this week and from the look of his school's menu the little royal has some exciting lunch options coming up.

Prince George will be heading back to school this week and his first day is set to be the most special yet.

The young royal has enjoyed a jam-packed summer with an exotic holiday to the Caribbean, days cycling with his sister and a last little trip to Scotland to visit his Gan Gan at the Balmoral Estate where he picked up a controversial new hobby.

Each time we see the five-year-old out-and-about he seems to have matured a little more and he's likely to be working up an appetite with all the running around he's been enjoying.

Prince George is known to be a bit of a foodie and Kate previously revealed that her children love making homemade pizzas and have a particular sweet spot for Italian food.

Luckily for Kate, Prince George's school have an exciting lunch menu serving up dishes that are sure to impress her son and satisfy his appetite.

So there will be no panic the night before school starts with those dreaded school packed lunch preparations on top of trying to get the kids back into a routine.

No, Prince George's school has a three-week menu rotation with dishes most adults would be keen to tuck into.

From fresh fish, Moroccan tagine and an array of gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan options - the kids at Thomas's Battersea have food fit for royalty. The kids are treated to a mid-morning snack followed by a two-course lunch.

How to make meatballs

Prince George can enjoy the likes of beef meatballs and pasta and pie with steamed vegetables 

On week one of the sample menu, Monday sees a protein main course of beef meatballs with crudités and whole wheat pasta. On Tuesday you can get a veggie main of chilli bean burrito and dessert of freshly prepared apple and courgette sponge with vanilla custard.

Week two sees items like smoked trout fillet with curly kale and hand carved oven roasted pork loin with sage gravy – yum!

The school are keen to remote healthy eating to their pupils and standby the principles of a varied, balanced diet.

According to the school's website: 'Each term the catering team develop a range of ideas and dishes with an emphasis on healthy cooking, full flavour and presentation that hopefully persuades pupils to eat and more importantly, enjoy a balanced diet whilst at school.'

What are the school meals at your children's school like? Would you like to pull up a seat at their lunch table or are packed lunches a safe escape..?
