FALUN, Sweden, Oct. 7 (UPI) -- A Swedish lunch lady has been told to tone down her cooking as students at other schools do not enjoy the same caliber of food, school officials said.
Annika Eriksson, a lunch lady at school in Falun, used to bake fresh bread for students, as well as serve them an assortment of 15 vegetables at lunchtime, The Local.se reported.
But now, she has been asked to stop because it was unfair that students at other schools didn't have the same meal options.
"It has been claimed that we have been spoiled and that it's about time we do as everyone else," Eriksson said.
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.
"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 body responsible for the school diet plan, told the local Falukuriren newspaper.
