Adelaide moves to reduce size of chicken schnitzel
Posted on August 01, 2016
Have we hit peak nanny state? In South Australia, the answer is... maybe.
The SA government has called for the humble chicken schnitzel to be reduced as too many leftovers were ending up in landfill.
"Sometimes I watch the body language of people when the meal comes out — their jaw drops literally when they see the size of some of the meals and a lot of the product is left on the plate," Keep South Australia Beautiful chief executive John Phillips told the ABC.
"This is about educating people to look at their habits or behaviour so they can take a personal responsibility.”
It is unclear exactly how the dish would be measured if the proposal is green-lighted.
