New Guidelines for Better Food in Schools

Sweden’s National Food Administration has developed new national guidelines for improving food at schools around the country.

The report ”Good Food in School” will be presented to the government Thursday and contains tips, advice and guidelines which municipalities and school cafeterias around the country should follow in order to meet higher standards of nutrition.

The National Food Administration, or NFA, recommends amongst other things that an adult should always be present at the dining table, and that there should be no salt on the table.

They also recommend placing salad in a strategic place, so that students take it before they take any other food.

The NFA is the central supervisory authority for matters relating to food and drinking-water.
