Veg Meals Win Contest

Vegan meals take first place in the USDA’s healthy school lunch recipe contest.

First lady Michelle Obama and the US Department of Agriculture, in an effort to promote healthy eating to American children, launched the Recipes for Healthy Kids competition last fall. Schools from across the nation submitted recipes that could be incorporated into the National School Lunch Program, and two vegan recipes received first-place marks. Tasty Tots, a low-fat, cholesterol-free sweet potato tot with a blended chickpea binder, won the popular choice prize, and the Central Valley Harvest Bake, made from squash, red quinoa, black beans, and other vegetables, won first place in the dark orange and green vegetable category.
