'Revolting' and 'wacky' dinners for Plymouth school children
SCHOOL dinners took a gruesome turn as children helped to celebrate International Book Week.
The scary snacks served on Wacky Wednesday were designed by the kids themselves, inspired by Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes.
The special event, thought up by school canteen manager Natasha Wilkes, saw an increase in the number of children ordering school dinners.
Headteacher Kevin Duggan said: "The children were encouraged to design a wacky gruesome monster menu as part of an activity for homework to feed into International Book Week.

"Natasha Wilkes had this idea as part of the whole school integrated learning curriculum, linked in to the desire to encourage more children to eat healthy school dinners freshly cooked on site.
"This was a great success because many children entered the competition and 120 children were fed from the wacky menu."
The menu included wacky dishes including purple and green cauliflower, Chinese seaweed, pink mash, wormy spaghetti, sting bug eggs and glumptious glob gobblers.
For desert the children had jelly filled apple bowls, jelly bean pie and chocolate pizza washed down with blue water and peach juice.
Mr Duggan added: "The children had a fantastic time and enjoyed the whole experience."
