This Is What Prince George Eats for Lunch

No sloppy joes or tater tots here

Forget Taco Tuesdays and Pizza Fridays. The school lunch menu at Prince George's London day school will put your lunch lady's sloppy joes and chicken nuggets to shame.

There's no mystery meat, canned green beans or fruit cocktail in sight at this high-class cafeteria. The three-week menu cycle reads like that of a Michelin-starred restaurant, with picks like lamb ragout with garlic and fresh herbs, salmon fillet with salsa verde, Mediterranean couscous, three-bean ratatouille, and even Portuguese egg custard tarts.

The catering team at Thomas's Battersea develops dishes "with an emphasis on healthy cooking, full flavour and presentation," according to the school's website. The menu changes with the season, offering lighter lunches in the warmer months and heartier meals in the colder months. 

The daily menu for the royal tot includes a midmorning snack; a starter of fresh soup and bread; a main course with a protein (meat, fish or vegetarian), a vegetable and a carb; as well as a dessert.

With a menu this grand and a sticker price of £18,000 ($24K) a year, we can't imagine many food fights occur in these royal halls. And with baby number three on the way, we're sure Princess Kate is relieved to be released of lunch-packing duty.
