I think schools and kindergartens don't have the right to refuse vegetarian choice. It would be discrimination.
And to say it is an unhealthy standart is a lie and a shame! Vegetarian diet is much healthier than eating meat. This has been agreed by most Medical Societies in the world since meat-eater tend to develop much more intestinal cancers than vegetarians.

If any school or kindergarten is refusing your son vegetarian choice in Slovenia, please let us know so that we contact the authorities and the Ombudsman.

All the best



Dear Lama thanks for reply.

I will connect with You about this metter.


Everything good,

Kyidzom

Thank You.

I am very much in favour of vegetarianism, including from children, given that the adults provide large variety of food to balance the diet efficiently.

In the framework of vegetarianism, no problem. Cheese, and other dairy products, eventually eggs, are bringing all necessary elements for a health.
In the case of veganism, it's more restrictive, and consequently more difficult to balance correctly. Some deficiencies can occur, especially in vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium, iodine and omega-3 fatty acids. I'm not saying it's not possible to have a healthy vegan diet for children, but it's more delicate than vegetarian.

Indeed, it would help reduce the bad conditions of farming, poultry, and other way to bring animal products in our plates or as clothing...

If a lot of people were to become vegan, the society would provide a large range of products to replace. Then it would be ok. Nowadays, it's a bit complicated.

Good morning/Dobro jutro,

If any school or kindergarten is refusing your son vegetarian choice in Slovenia, please let us know so that we contact the authorities and the Ombudsman.

There is an article about this in today's Dnevnik. They checked a few schools, some have around 40 vegetarians (out of 400 pupils). Some schools adapt others don't, so I guess there is no clear rule. O

English version

Taken from the website of one kindergarden: http://vrtec-vrhnika...hp?lng=sl&pg=68

The opinion of the experts of the Paediatric clinic is that the institutions like kindergarden are not obliged to prepare or provide vegetarian food, since vegetarian food after the second year can be perhaps harmless under strict controlled and expensive preparation (while there are no scientific evidence that it is beneficial). In practice the structure (variety) of vegetarian food is often insufficient (lacking something) due to expert or economic reasons and as such even harmful for the health and that's why it is not recommended in general.
(source: Opinion on the suitability of vegetarian food in educational-caring foundations, 32nd regular session of the RSK for paediatry, 24.5.06)

:blink:
We should prepare an informational text to be sent to the Ministries of Health and of Education to correct this type of archaic way of thinking!
They are few decades behind! Vegetarianism has been proven to be beneficial (reduction of intestinal cancer for example), etc...

Draftman, a draft should be made! :-//
