While recent adjustments to school lunches in America have prompted student complaints, pupils and parents at an elementary school in central Sweden are also protesting changes to their cafeteria’s cuisine.

Annica Eriksson, the head cook at the Falun school, received an order from the municipality to decrease the quality of her cooking after it discovered she served a variety of 15 vegetables and freshly baked bread to students each day. The municipality claims that these offerings are “unfair” to students at other local schools, who consume meals of a lesser quality, The Local reported.
