Indian School Calls for Healthy Vegetarian Lunches

A school in Kerala, India has banned meat from its school cafeteria in an effort to combat childhood obesity.

According to Times of India, India’s Devamatha CMI Public School recently went meat-free in order to address the rising problem of obesity among children. The school’s cafeteria no longer serves meat-based meals and instead offers healthier vegetarian lunches; the school administrators also implemented a policy banning students from bringing meat from home, encouraging nutritional plant-based lunches and low-sugar snacks in place of the cakes and deep-fried sweets, or jalebis, parents were packing. The school board admitted it expected push back on the new rules, but no objections were raised at the Parent Teacher Association meeting. In addition to nutrition, Devamatha hosts daily yoga and physical fitness classes. “We introduced it last year, and during the health check-up this year, the doctors observed that the number of overweight children has reduced,” principal Shaju Edamana tells the news outlet.
