Should more public school districts implement Meatless Mondays in the school week?

Posted by: Logical.Assasinator

For those who don't know, Meatless Mondays is a program in some USA public schools and districts where one day of the school week the cafeteria food contains no meat or fish (basically vegetarian or vegan only).

  • Some days have meat and some days have vegetarian. Have a balance of it, not entirely vegan food or meat-y foods.

  • Why does it always have to go meat eaters' way? We (veggies and vegans) want one day of the week, that's all we ask. We have to put up wit meat eaters every day of our lives, so we deserve a day. I don't even live in the USA but I am the Lorax and I speak for the vegetarians...Haha.

  • Meat is brain food. It takes a committed vegan to believe otherwise for obvious reasons. Now, if you want to only do finger painting and basket weaving on Monday, well, maybe a slow brain would be adequate, but for real brain work and a real education, feed you brain lots of protein and animal fat.

  • Meat is required in an every-day balanced diet. It contains enzymes that have protein and animal fat. Meat is also very stimulative for your brain and helps contain a balanced diet.

STEVE meat isn't a brain food, protein is

And protein comes from more than just meat.

@Newtronimus no it has not. I have been a vegetarian for most of my life and I am living a healthy lifestyle. We don't NEED meat to get protein and enzymes, those are found in other places too. Http://www.Nomeatathlete.Com/vegetarian-protein/ . Red meat has also been linked to heart disease, contributing to obesity and aiding achne. I literally have no spots on my face or body, except the little brown moles that everyone s born with.

@SteveFromTexas me and all of my vegetarian friends are sitting A levels and going to college/university. You were saying? There are people who eat meat who are equally as incompetent, so yo can't really base your argument on that.

Also, animal fat isn't essential. You can get healthier fat from other places.

So? What is wrong with it? Humanity has been living on meat since the beginning of our existence. We already have the infrastructure built to supply meats to the masses. There is no point to tear it down because its " Unmoral ". That won't happen. Only when they are to expensive to maintain will it be stopped.
