Americans have a first lady dictating what students can eat in school. Sweden's apparently worse.

According to Swedish website The Local, a lunch lady in Falun has been ordered to stop cooking food for elementary school students that is "too good."

Annika Eriksson makes lunches consisting of newly baked bread and an assortment of 15 vegetables for her students at the school.

But the local municipality has order her to "bring it down a notch since other schools do not receive the same calibre of food."

You see, that's "unfair."

Her menu also doesn't comply with a 2011 "healthy diet scheme."

According to The Local, Katarina Lindberg, head of the unit responsible for the school diet scheme, told the local Falukuriren newspaper, "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."

As a result, Eriksson's new offerings will consist of one half less vegetables and store-bought bread rather than her handmade ones.

Ahhhh....socialism at work. Spreading misery since 1880. Sounds a lot like a union shop. Don’t want the lunch lady to be a “rate buster” do we?

Just proof that when a socialist says the word “fair”, they mean “lowest common denominator”.

Will they mainstream all the kid’s test scores?
Maybe they should attach weights to the athletes and strap noise-generating headphones on the smarter kids?

Under liberalism, everyone must have the same things. No one must be allowed to enjoy the fruits of his labor, but must instead give most of it to lazy slobs.
Of course, the liberal elite has whatever it wants and enjoys the good life while ordinary people sweat and pay.

That is an example of hatred of the good for being good.

I think the world would be better off if the Muslims took over Sweden and then we wiped all the Muslims there out and allowed normal people to repopulate the place.

THEY, along with the other Scandinavian COuntries and Britain have been taken over by lunatics bent on cultural suicide.

I can’t believe this government of pusillanimous idiots once spawned Vikings.

All the Vikings must have left Scandinavia for parts unknown. God knows they coould use a few million to repopulate the Country.

So instead of bringing the other school lunch ladies over to see how to improve in their job they would rather punish the talented one. Maybe some of these kids will get an early lesson in socialism.

In a free market, everyone would flock to her and the others would be forced to improve to be competitive. Leftists just can’t seem to fathom that.

Didn't the Vikings originate in Denmark? I'm sure they eventually populated Sweden and Norway.

I can see why she’s not allowed to bake homemade bread. Back in the day, our lunchroom ladies baked homemade yeast rolls so the students were in dreamland drooling instead of paying attention in whatever class was right before lunch.

No. Danish vikings raided the continent and England, Norweigan Vikings raided mainly Ireland, Scotland and points west. Swedes operated mainly in the Baltic and later in Russia.

But they were very mobile and vikings from different parts of Scandinavia operated in all theaters of the Viking expansion.

At that time, Danish, Swedish and Norweigan were so close that they were practically just dialects of Old Norse the common language.

Even Anglo-Saxon (aka Old English)was very close to Old Norse.

Everywhere I went to school, and ate at a school cafeteria, had good food except ONE! Aztec NM back in 1956 (4th grade) was the worst food I have ever had to gag down. Kids were constantly throwing the food up.
Kirtland NM, on the other hand had really good food. Artesia and Tatum had good food, so did Denver Colorado schools. The Arkansas school had good food.

The other schools I went to, I lived so close I went home for lunch. I began to carry my own lunch at AZTEC, the food was so bad!

Idiots.
What they SHOULD be doing (what I would be doing...) is running cooks from other schools through her kitchen to learn from her.

mass psychosis no different than the old ergoline alkaloid plagues of medieval times causing mass unexplainable hysteria and panic

that being the source of D-lysergic acid 25 also known as LSD...a beautiful but wicked invention
