Several parents of children in the Kleine Kunstenaar kindergarten in Houthalen (Belgium) started a petition since their children are being forced to eat halal on a school trip.

"Muslims can only consume halal meat due to their faith, but that doesn't mean our children have to eat it," they say. The parents are asking for an alternative burger for their children, but the school says that's 'practically impossible'.
"Leaving our children home is also not an option, because we won't be refunded the cost of the outing." Several dozen parents have meanwhile signed the petition.
