Lunch lady slammed for food that is 'too good'
TheLocal ^ | 6 Oct 12 | unknown

Annika Eriksson, a lunch lady at school in Falun, was told that her cooking is just too good.

Pupils at the school have become accustomed to feasting on newly baked bread and an assortment of 15 vegetables at lunchtime, but now the good times are over.

The municipality has ordered Eriksson to bring it down a notch since other schools do not receive the same calibre of food - and that is "unfair".

Moreover, the food on offer at the school doesn't comply with the directives of a local healthy diet scheme which was initiated in 2011, according to the municipality.

"A menu has been developed... It is about making a collective effort on quality, to improve school meals overall and to try and ensure everyone does the same," Katarina Lindberg, head of the unit responsible for the school diet scheme, told the local Falukuriren newspaper.

LOL. Looks and sounds like what we had back in ‘63 for high school cafeteria lunch bill-o-fare, on Wednesdays. Brrrrr. Scalding hot tuna casserole on Fridays, was inedible torture. Annika Eriksson’s cuisine would have been hailed as a godsend!

Yet another glaring example of the inefficiencies of the public sector. If the schools were privately run the cook would be promoted to teach her techniques to all the school cafeterias.

Redistribution of food quality.

My cohorts thought I was Catholic because I always had the fried fish on Friday. It was the one thing in the cafeteria at Jefferson Davis Jr. High that was consistently excellent.

Not quite sure what makes Mooochelle an expert on diet.

Part of Michelle’s drive to force white folks on a steady diet of “Soylent Green” in order to be “fair”...

This was in Sweden, but who knows how long Michelle's reach is? I've seen those arms....

Anyway, since the "collective" is looking for egalitarianism for all the schools - why in the name of Sven aren't they encouraging the lesser cooks to step up to Ericsson's level instead of dragging the best down? This is the problem - the least competent are ruling, and it seems to be catching on worldwide.

Government mandated collective uniformity. Individuality is banned, everyone is part of the same, except of course our over Lords who are in charge of making sure we don’t step out of sync.

“Imagine that same panel discussing the quality of your health care!”

We are fast approaching the novel/movie, 1984, by Orwell. Everyone ate only approved food, and no one better have anything else. You were always on a live monitor for the government to watch what you were doing, at work and at home. If you read a book, they would know it and come get you as no one could read anything except what they said to read.

that’s what my shopping basket has become - i used to buy a weeks worth of groceries for about $150 - now I spend easily $200 to $230 when I shop and I have to stretch that over 2 weeks so I buy crappier food. Why? Because my cost in gas and utilities have gone up. Someone recently told me that they truly thought we were better off than we were four years... BS.

Just a preview of things to come to the US.

You get punished, if you excel.

Instead of setting her as an example for other school district lunch planning, they are bringing school lunches to the lowest common denominator, by order of the government!!! - Michelle Obama would be proud.

“Eriksson added that she sees it as her job to ensure that the pupils are offered several alternatives at meal times.

The food on offer does not always suit all pupils, she explained, and therefore she makes sure there are plenty of vegetables to choose from as well as proteins in the form of chicken, shrimp, or beef patties.

From now on, the school’s vegetable buffet will be halved in size and Eriksson’s handmade loafs will be replaced with store-bought bread.”

Years ago this exact thing happened to my girlfriend’s mother.

Her cooking put the other schools to shame and the admins requested she tone it down.

She chose to retire instead.

I’d like to know how that person ‘PAYS’ for their food bill.

In liberal la la land everyone must be equally miserable except the liberal elite who have the best of everything while scorning the ordinary people.

Why doesn't the other schools hire people to create food like that for their students?? I know, it is too simple for LIBERALS!!

Well - this is the same person who told me that food was an entitlement (the underlying accusation was that conservatives typically would let people starve). She’s not on any kind of government subsidy - she lives in a very nice house and her husband is a medical professional. It was a really disappointing conversation.
