Can you live in Spain AND be vegan? Apparently so...
28 January 2019 @ 13:55

PARENTS who bring their children up vegetarian or vegan are fighting for schools to cater for their kids in the canteen – often, only meat options are available or, at best, meat or fish, and families who choose not to include one or both of these in their daily diets say their rights are being ignored.

Children with allergies or intolerances, including diabetic or coeliac kids, are always offered lunch options suitable for them, as long as they show a doctor's note, and pupils whose religious background affects their diet such as Hindu families, where beef is off the menu or, more commonly in Spain, Muslims who do not eat pork, ham or bacon, have an automatic legal right to school meals free from these products. Indeed, with Moroccans being Spain's largest foreign resident community due to the historical and cultural ties between the two countries, and their geographical nearness, this has been automatic for decades.
