“Skipping meat one day a week is good for you, great for your nation’s health, and fantastic for the planet. There is no better place to educate our children about health and nutrition than in our nation’s schools!”
Meatless Monday is now in hundreds of public and private K-12 schools in 17 states throughout the U.S, creating a weekly opportunity to introduce more plant-based foods and teach children about healthy eating. With more school cafeterias joining the movement every day, Meatless Monday is an easy, effective and affordable way to boost nutrition and start kids on a lifetime of good eating habits. www.meatlessmonday.com
One great example is the San Diego Unified School District offering delicious vegetarian meals with locally grown fruits and vegetables available every Monday, helping children make better choices and work toward reducing childhood obesity.
