The price of school meals is being frozen across North Yorkshire for the third year in a row.
North Yorkshire County Councillors have decided that the service will not increase the price of a school meal, which had last been raised in 2010.
Officers insist keeping the price on hold will not come at the expense of reducing the quality of food used.
Councillor Arthur Barker, Executive Member for Schools, said:
"We understand the increasing pressure on the family purse at this present time and I am delighted to be able to say that it is business as usual for school meals with the price being held while maintaining the high quality of produce used.
"This is very much a tribute to all our hard working catering staff who are continuing to ensure a quality but low cost service."
