Meatless menu sparks outrage

A decision has been made in Lyon, Fracne to take all meat out of school lunches.

The decision, made by the mayor of Lyon, has sparked a political row.

The Lyon government feed over 200,000 children everyday through their school lunch programme.

The city council said the decision to provide the same meatless four-course lunch was needed during Covid-19. They said that physical distancing rules necessitated more sittings in school canteens. They could not serve the meals if there was a choice of meat and vegetarian menus.

The amount of meat in diets has been an issue for France. Last year the government recommended a more vegetable-based diet, but mainly to counter the unhealthy impact of fast food and takeaways.

But resistance to the new rules has been strong, especially from France’s powerful farming union.

The Lyon decision was met with protest in the form of tractors, cows and goats paraded in front of the city hall. Banners proclaimed: “Meat from our fields = a healthy child”.
