Liver pate and meatballs MUST be served to preschool children, say two big municipalities who require that institutions in their areas serve pork to the children, reports BT.
Should nurseries be allowed to decide what food they will serve to the children?
No, believe the two municipalities, who demand that the little new Danes should have pork on the menu.
The decision comes after the kindergarten Langenæsstien in Aarhus decided not to serve pork to the children. Neither the kindergarten in Jenumparken have pork on the menu because some of the children (Muslims) in the institution do not eat it.
"We have taken the decision that the meals are common, where it has to be right for everyone. When eaten, we sit together at a table," says Anne Mette Kalstrup, a member of the day care board in Langenæsstien, to TV2.
Now both Randers and Horsens municipalities, however, require that all their daycare centres serve dishes like meatballs and liver pate from pork to the children.
According to TV2, it is the Left party and the immigration critical Danish People's Party (DF) in the two municipalities who have decided that all institutions should offer pork.
It is far from the first time that pork and questions about children's food at kindergartens creates debate.
The Danish People's Party has previously demanded pork on the plates in kindergartens to ensure a balanced diet for children. Many of the other parties were against the proposal.
The individual municipalities may determine which meals to offer in kindergartens.
We can only hope that Randers and Horsens' demand will spread, which is likely. DF is Denmark's largest party.
