This food is selling out thanks to Prince George

People won’t stop buying Puy lentils because Prince George eats them © Hearst Communications, Inc. All rights reserved People won’t stop buying Puy lentils because Prince George eats them Prince George recently started school, and you can’t have missed it because the pictures were adorable. And everywhere. 

You may also know a fair bit about the school itself - Thomas’ in Battersea, London. For example, the young royal won’t be allowed to have a best friend. He does an adorable little handshake with his teachers everyday... oh, and his school menu looks like something from a Michelin-starred restaurant.

The school offers "a three week menu cycle, repeated once". The menu "changes with the season, so that we offer lighter lunches during the lighter days and more substantial meals when the days turn cold."

This menu doesn’t include fish fingers and beans, followed by chocolate custard (the best). Oh no - the fee-paying school feeds their children things like lamb ragout, bruschetta and poached haddock.

Yep, fancy.

So fancy, in fact, that it appears to have given a bunch of adults some new recipe inspiration. Either that, or parents everywhere have started to feel guilty about stocking up on turkey dinosaurs (do they still exist? I hope so).

Puy lentils are reportedly selling out in supermarkets after it was revealed that George would be eating them at school. The pulse, which originated in France, is served to four-year-old George along with smoked mackerel at school.

“We've had high demand from clients in Britain.

“Maybe the trend won't last on the other side of the Channel. But with the vogue for being vegan, we're hopeful.”

If George loves it, then so do we. That kid has taste.
