During the next school year, there will be a free, meat-free school meal for all students at upper secondary schools in Oslo, the City Council has decided.

Eventually, junior high schools will also receive the same offer, the City Council told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

The schools will receive a sum of money from the Municipality that will cover the expense of the meals, and the schools can choose whether they want to spend the money on breakfast, lunch, or both.

The City Council promised free school meals already in 2019. The food will cost Oslo Municipality NOK 96 million a year.

    This a very good plan that helps to educate students to eat in a better healthy way, not only in the schools but later, at home. Goverments should do this very carefull introducing nice and suitable healthy food guided for well known professionals in the kitchen. If you try to introduce young people, who almost eat everyday some kind of proscessed food (ussually full of aditives and taste enhancers), to healthy food that they do not enjoy enough, you may not get the desired results of this plan. Even will provoque, in some cases, the opposite effect.
