FALUN, Sweden (CBSDC) – A lunch lady was informed that she needed to use less of her culinary prowess in preparing food for students to eat, because children in other schools did not get to enjoy the same quality meals.
Swedish news website Local.se learned that the cafeteria worker, Annika Eriksson, would bake fresh bread and serve a variety of vegetables to students in her Falun school.
Administrators have asked her to cease both practices, according to United Press International, because the disparity between her meals and those available at comparable schools in the area was deemed unfair.
“It has been claimed that we have been spoiled and that it’s about time we do as everyone else,” Eriksson added.
Instead, the school will reportedly use bread purchased in a store, and offer approximately half of the 15 vegetables previously made available to kids.
“A menu has been developed,” Katarina Lindberg, the person in charge of the governing body deciding school diets, was quoted as saying to a local newspaper. “It is about making a collective effort on quality, to improve school meals overall and to try and ensure everyone does the same.”
