Oslo MDGs have replaced meat in nursing homes with fava beans: – Vegetarian food should be the standard choice




Einar Wilhelmsen is a member of the finance board in Oslo and is a member of the MDGs. He just sent a letter to all the municipal businesses.

There he reminded that vegetarian food must be served unless the person who will eat it determines otherwise.

– At the nursing home, they have reduced some of the meat in the meatballs and replaced it with fava beans. This is a change that is in line with national recommendations and is quality assured by nutritionists. It is important to us that the food served in the municipality is nutritious and of good quality, says Wilhelmsen Nordre Aker Budstickkebut he stressed that meat is not forbidden:


– The guidelines on the city council platform do not imply a ban on serving meat or fish, but vegetarian meals should be a standard choice at city events. Vegetarian food which should be the standard option means vegetarian food is served, unless the guest asks for something else. This means switching to current practice, where the standard choice is usually a meal consisting of meat or fish, but guests can request a vegetarian meal instead.
