france bans vegan vegetarian meals school

France has issued a governmental order mandating that all meals served in school canteens in France must contain animal products, and that meat and fish will be served at a certain minimum frequency. This implies that no vegetarian or vegan can eat at any public or private school in France (bringing lunch to school is not an option, since the government has also banned packed lunches).

France is planning to pass similar requirements for almost all forms of catering from kindergartens to hospitals, prisons and retirement homes.

So are vegan and vegetarian kids in France supposed to survive on french fries? REALLY?

Pourquoi… Pourquoi…
