The mayor of the French city of Lyon has removed meat from the school’s lunch list. The country’s government has started criticizing the mayor’s move. News from the BBC.
In this context, Green Party member and mayor Gregory Duchess said the move would help speed up food delivery services in the face of coronavirus restrictions.
But the French government is not taking the mayor’s job lightly. Some government ministers have complained that this will put children’s health at risk.
Agriculture Minister Julian Denermandy tweeted, ‘Let’s stop showing the norm on our children’s dishes. Let’s give them what they need to grow well. ‘
Home Minister Gerald Dermanin called it an “unacceptable insult” to French farmers and butchers.
“We see that the Greens’ principled and aristocratic policies are undermining the popular class, ”he said. Many children often eat meat only in the school canteen.
In response, Duchess said he introduced the same rule when his right-wing predecessor was mayor during last year’s epidemic.
Excluding meat, fish and eggs will be on the list. Duchess said the food list for all children would be balanced.
Nutritionists say a vegetarian diet is safe for children. But they advised to be extra careful to include meat, iron and other minerals.
However, there are signs of a change in the taste of food in France. In 2017, a new law has made it mandatory to keep vegetarian food in schools one day. France’s restaurant ratings have recently made history by getting a vegetarian restaurant ‘Michelin star’.
Although Mayor Gregory Duch’s rule is only a pandemic, he is vocal about changing French practice. He criticized France’s famous ‘Tour de France’ cycling competition as ‘masculine and polluting’.
