Debate stirred after pork pulled from daycare menu
Pork is increasingly being taken off the menu for children in the nation's daycares in order to accommodate religious groups, tabloid Ekstra Bladet reported this week.
According to the tabloid's survey, pork is no longer served in around 30 daycare institutions across the country, while Ishøj Council - which has a large Muslim population - has introduced a blanket policy not serve pork at any of its daycares or nurseries.
Ekstra Bladet reports that several Copenhagen daycares have also stopped serving pork and have started to serve only meat which is slaughtered according to Islamic 'halal' guidelines.
