A mother has hit out at the ‘disgusting’ dinner served at a Scottish primary school – branding it ‘s***’ that she ‘wouldn’t even serve to her dog’. 

Gemma O’Grady, 38, shared a photo of her daughter Caisey’s lunch at St Pius Primary in Dundee, Scotland, sparking a wave of appall on Facebook, with one user labelling it ‘prison food’.

The youngster was served two ‘raw looking’ cooked sausages, two lumps of boiled potato, beside an glob of ‘dessert’ and a plastic cup of milk on the side.

Ms O’Grady has now promised her daughter she’ll make her packed lunches to take to school.  

Dundee City Council confirmed they were in discussions with the contractors about the food.

The unappetising meal consisted of two barely cooked sausages, two boiled potatoes, an unidentified desert covered in custard and milk in a plastic cup

Under the name Gemz OG, the mother posted: ‘Not even joking this is the s**** St Pius primary school is dishing out too the kids.’

Referring to the pupil who received the meal, she added: ‘It’s no wonder she asks for money every single day to go to shops with her pals.

‘She is certainly not eating that. Packed lunches as of now.’ 

In a later post, she added: ‘Thanks guys it’s a f****** disgrace putting that s*** down to hungry/growing children.

‘I honestly wouldn’t give that too my dog.

‘A complaint has been put forward to Tayside Contracts and fingers crossed they get this sorted as I for one do not have money to give her daily for the shops, but as of now it will most definitely be packed lunch (made by me).’
