Annika Eriksson is the head cook at a school in Falun, Sweden. Her students have enjoyed extraordinarily good meals, including fresh-baked bread and a vegetable buffet with over a dozen different offerings. School officials told her the food she was serving to the students was too good -and that she will have to scale it back because it’s not fair to students at other schools in the district.
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.
Her traditional Easter and Christmas smörgåsbords may also be under threat.
Parents and pupils alike find the municipality’s orders distasteful.
Fourth-graders at the school have even launched a petition in protest against the decision to put a lid on Eriksson’s passion for cooking.
