New school meals Evgenia Klopotenko recipes – what to cook for lunch / NV

We share recipes for various dishes that have become part of the new school children’s menu.

From the new academic year, children from schools and kindergartens have switched to a new menu approved by the Ministry of Health, which reduces the amount of sugar and flour, while increasing the percentage of vegetables and fruit. The initiators of the changes were Elena Zelenskaya and Evgeny Klopotenko, who worked on the development of updated dishes.

Recently, there has been a big discussion on social networks about the new menu: many parents consider the dishes unsuitable for the taste and needs of children, others complain about implementation problems.

We have collected 11 dishes from the menu proposed by Yevgeny Klopotenko so that you can evaluate it by making it for yourself at home.
