Great meatball debate rolls on

Statements by the prime minister yesterday that schools should serve pork products, even though Muslim students cannot eat them, are unlikely to have an effect, say local and school officials. School menus are determined at the school level, where the primary consideration is what students want to eat. “The way we do it now, food isn’t a problem,” said Lars Klingenberg, the head of Forældrenes Landsforening, the national parents’ association. He described a system in which parents, cooking staff and school employees all worked together to set a school menu. Instead of focusing on menus, he said the PM should work to improve childcare funding. – Jyllands-Posten
