This article raises another issue which may be the underlying cause if this.

"Moreover, the food on offer at the school doesn't comply with the directives of a local healthy diet scheme which was initiated in 2011, according to the municipality."

If she was following this she may not have brought attention to herself. I work in a school and we're given a new menu every year which states what you can and cannot give each day/week, everything must be balanced and it must be adhered to.

Instead of knocking her down, put her on the board, give them someone to listen to who works in the field and is doing good with what she is given.
Her meals may need to be tweaked somewhat due to regulations but surely someone who is willing to put their all in to something like this is also someone who needs to be on the board that decides is these thing? Unfortunately having worked for a council for 10+ years, this is never how it works :(

No one at the governing/supervisory level stopped to think that a better solution would be to bring the quality of lunches in the OTHER SCHOOLS up to the same level as this one??
So instead lets tell her to dial it back to make it "fair".

This is idiocy.

Except often times "healthy" diets that schools implement are not, and are usually created using horribly outdated information as the scheme passes through many levels of boards and councils and governing bodies, that all want to add their own touches and tweaks.
Id bet dollars to doughnuts that this lady was offering far more healthy diets to these students than the supposed plan that the powers that be want to follow.

In other words, let us ruin our lunch program and have it uneatable just like everyone else. Just plain stupid.
