San Diego Schools Will Adopt Meatless Mondays

The Southern California school district has taken a step in a healthier direction by eliminating meat from cafeteria menus one day per week.

Earlier this week, the San Diego Unified School District board voted to instate Meatless Mondays in its kindergarten through eighth-grade cafeterias. The dietary measure is an attempt by the school system to curb the 28-percent obesity rate among San Diego children. According to NBC, some proposed veg-friendly dishes to be served next fall include tofu and vegetable stir fry, baked potatoes, and grilled vegetable paninis. While there were a few naysayers, the dietary overhaul has garnered support from a majority of the school board and health professionals. Larry Hansen MD, a professor at the University of California, San Diego, gave the board five reasons why they should indulge in Meatless Mondays: “Heart disease, cancer, strokes, diabetes, and obesity, all of which are linked to eating too much meat,” he was quoted by NBC.
