The lunch menu at Prince George's new school is a far cry from a sandwich and a carton of milk.

Earlier this month, Prince George began his education at Thomas's Battersea school, a private institution that costs more than €19,000 per year.

According to the school's website, the four-year-old will be treated to a selection of mouth-watering meals that would rival those served in a Michelin star restaurant.

On a sample menu, lunch options include "freshly prepared authentic lamb ragout with garlic and fresh herbs, organic grated cheese with baton carrots and cucumber and steamed fibre rich whole wheat twisty pasta," and "freshly prepared BBQ pork strips, steamed baby corn, carrots and mange tout, Mediterranean 50/50 cous cous and quinoa."

There is also a vegetarian and fish option, such as "freshly prepared salmon fillet with a salsa verde" and "freshly prepared chickpea, spinach ad sweet potato curry."

Dessert options range from "freshly baked Portuguese egg custard tart with strawberries" to "oven baked oatmeal and raisin cookie served with a banana milkshake."

A fresh seasonal salad bar is also available daily, as well as fresh fruit platters and yogurts as an alternative to the dessert of the day.

George's new school has been described by the Good Schools Guide as: "A big, busy, slightly chaotic school for cosmopolitan parents who want their children to have the best English education money can buy.

"That is what they want and, to a large degree, that is what they get."

The young prince and his classmates will be taught a range of subjects and activities from ballet and art to drama, French, music and physical education.

His mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, has already said she is not sure her son "has any idea what's going to hit him'' when he starts school.
