Primary school pupils were served a "disgusting" sausage and potato dinner that wasn’t even fit for a dog, a furious mum says.
This shocking photo shows two sausages that look barely cooked next to two lumps of boiled potato and an unidentified dessert.
Parents reacted with fury after seeing the snap online, saying they now plan to send their children to school with packed lunches.
The meal served at St Pius Primary in Dundee, where the local council has vowed to speak to their contractors, was compared to "prison food".
The image was posted on Facebook by a user calling herself Gemz OG.
She wrote: “Not even joking this is the sh** 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."
The woman added: “Thanks guys it’s a f***ing 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).”
A fellow Facebook user wrote back: " I feel physically sick if my children had to eat this!! Disgusting."
A spokeswoman for Dundee City Council confirmed the picture was genuine, adding: "We are in discussions with Tayside Contracts about this."
A spokeswoman for Tayside Contracts said: "Our menus and recipes are produced by a dedicated menu development team and involve a consultation process which includes pupils and other key stakeholders.
"Pupils choose which elements of this meal are put on their particular plate.

"Our sausages and burgers are made to a bespoke specification by our butcher and are reduced fat and salt to ensure they are a healthier option to reflect the requirements of the Scottish Government.
"Tayside Contracts quality management system is designed to ensure a high quality meal is produced across the school meals service.
"If there are issues with meals identified, these are fully investigated and resolved."
The photo sparked outrage and shock amongst parents.
One Facebook user wrote: “Some poor kids are starving and that s*** is probably all they’re getting. I honestly can’t believe they’re putting that down to kids in this day and age.”
Another said: “No wonder my kids come in from school everyday saying they are starving. I wouldn’t eat that s*** if that was put in front of me.”
One wrote: “That’s not food. Whoever supplies this so called food should be shut down and the council should be ashamed for letting this go unnoticed. Disgrace.”
Another posted: “Oh my I can’t believe an adult would actually serve that out to anyone. They sausages look raw. That’s not even a meal, I’m shocked."
And one added: “Looks like prison food.”
