Queensland prisoners served up special diets and three square meals while pensioners scrimp to eat well
by Kay Dibben
More than 1000 Queensland prisoners are on special diets, ordering everything from meals without mushrooms or pineapples to high fibre and gluten-free dishes.
It costs more than $10.5 million a year to feed the state's 6220 prisoners three wholesome meals a day, with food serves that would make a pensioner envious.
Special diets are dished out to 1018 Queensland inmates, 827 of them for medical reasons and 191 on the diets for cultural or religious reasons.
