If you're planning your Christmas Day shopping list, take a guess at how many pigs in blankets school catering staff in Argyll and Bute have to prepare to feed Christmas lunch to our hungry pupils ?

The answer - a staggering 13,500!

This festive season, our school dinner staff will also serve up over 120 turkeys, pupils will eat almost 9,500 stuffing balls, and together they will pull over 19,500 crackers.


The youngsters will also enjoy 340kg of Brussel sprouts and 725kg of carrots – almost the same weight as five pianos. That's a lot of vegetables!
