We used to wonder what the "meat" was so maybe this is an improvement.

Have they never heard of ratatouille?

Did they not have grandparents who had to go through rationing during Nazi occupation?

fark that noise. What about people on Keto or other diets? Forcing a vegetarian diet on a person is no different than forcing an omnivore diet on a vegetarian/vegan. If you think you have the right to tell others what they can and cannot eat you should go fark yourself with a rusty and dull chainsaw.

Well no meat and pudding. Probably anemia then diabetes.

But hey. They had the imaginary line. Do it again with your own population.

It's school lunch. School have been telling kids what they can eat for decades. I'm not saying this French approach is right, or best for the kids, but it happens.

No, no it really hasn't. Even Chicago Public Schools had a "choice" of slop. If you wanted "meat" it was available. If you wanted what passed for veg, that was there too. They specifically said they are going vegetarian because omnivore and vegetarian would be too difficult. Fine. then keep omnivore. Vegetarians can pick out the veg, the Keto crowd can get their meats and everyone has something.

Consider this. Traitors and federal prisoners in this country can demand an organic diet that meets their needs. These children are treated worse.

Are packed lunches banned under this system? Children with strict dietary requirements, whether they be keto/vegetarian/vegan/kosher/halal/all​ergenic are probably best served in that way.

But those with strict dietary requirements are probably a very small minority, and a system geared toward the omnivorous is going to be the most efficient.

Yes, it might be shiat that the system doesn't meet every eventuality, but those the system can't feed could perhaps be compensated financially? A form of tax credit based around what the school meals cost?

The number of school kids doing keto is going to be vanishingly small.

I'd farking hope so.  That shiat is not ok for kids without medical supervision - and in this case "kids" means people that are still growing.  Carbs are not friggin' optional at that point in your life barring seizure conditions or other really specific shiat going wrong.

Oh, and those school pizzas we love to hate on but secretly have a nostalgic mouth watering for? The whole time the sausage was TVP. We weren't getting any real meat. But they didn't make it a point to talk about it so it wasn't anything people biatched about.

You could have stopped at the bolded. By your own logic the most children would be best served by a standard omnivorous menu instead of forcing everyone into a strict vegetarian diet. It's bullshiat and remains bullshiat even if you agree with vegetarianism.
