Chinese authorities are ordering a vegetarian kindergarten to add meat to its menu over fears surrounding nutrient deficiencies.

Deyin School in Chengdu city offers its students plant-based foods as well as milk and eggs – but refrains from serving fish and meat. 

According to multiple reports, this goes against the government’s guidelines for schools. Therefore, Deyin School has been told to ‘improve its eating plan’ and ‘make it more balanced’.
