I wonder how accurate this article is. It relates to vegetarian campaigner Paul McCartney criticizing the French Government for banning vegetarian meals in schools.
Apparently there will be no meat-free days in French schools following a new decree that all students will have to eat meat if they want lunch at school. And taking a packed lunch is not an alternative as they are also banned. The ban will shortly be extended to kindergartens, hospitals, prisons, colleges and old people's homes.
According to Raw Food Health over 2% of the French population are vegetarian. Other sites mention a lower percentage. I don’t know how reliable these figures are but assuming vegetarians are a minority then most people would not complain about this decree.
This ban makes me think about the article I summarized yesterday on food and beverage lobbying. Maybe the meat and fish industry had a higher lobbying budget.
