The schools where meat is off the menu for climate reasons

More schools are cutting down on meat in school meals in an effort to help curb greenhouse gas emissions and boost students' health.

Globala School in Stockholm has had a meat-free menu for ten years and cook, Magnus Naess, says the kitchen has got a 90% approval rating from students.

By law school lunches only have to be free and nutritious, but the National Swedish Food Agency published guidelines in April urging schools to serve up more vegetables. Radio Sweden spoke to dietician and advisor, Ulrika Backlund, from the agency, as well as students from Globala School.
