diabetic and coeliac children have the same problem with school meals.The canteens cannot be expected to cater for all diets.Packed lunches are the answer really.

Thanks for looking anyway - it has only been closed in the last day or so, and I think it's good news as it's now been considered as a firm proposal.  Which is really positive!  I did already sign the change.org petition you posted a link to and hope your daughter manages to sort something out for her new school year.

What's crazy about it?  You got the result you wanted without having to change the whole system to suit a minority interest.

You might like to contact the association L214 who campaign tirelessly for the better treatment of farm animals, and who also have meetings all over France, with frequent vegetarian meals organised.

You never know, they may be able to help, and will certainly be sympathetic.

The proceeds from the last horse show organised here  [22160 St Servais]   in 2014 went to them.

Apologies, I know this is an old post now, I'm a bit behind!

Just for info, I live near Vannes and our local council has asked for ideas as to how they can become more sustainable and "green" after the recent COP21 summit in Paris.  I made the suggestion that a Vegetarian meal option could be offered in school canteens. You can read my entry here ; http://www.idcity.fr/d/vannes_56260/consultations/19/ideas/483?popup=true  If I have enough positive votes, they will consider if it is feasible to implement my suggestion (so if you agree, you're welcome to vote for me too!)  Apologies if I've breached any rules by posting this, I thought it was relevant to the discussion :-)
