Conscious Vegan 757 started this petition to Children's hospital of the Kings Daughter

I’ve started this petition because of the lack of vegan/plant based options available in the cafeteria as well as for those who are patients in the hospital. 

As of parent of a child with a chronic illness, who is frequently at the hospital. This issue needs to be addressed. Many times my family has only had french fries or salads to dine on. CHKD is one of the leading hospitals and should be able to accommodate this lifestyle for their patients, family, and friends.

An ever-growing bank of research can highlight the health risks linked to meat, dairy, and eggs, and the benefits associated with a plant-based diet. Many experts agree that going vegan could help you live a longer life. It’s really a no brainer why these options should be readily available. Meat typically contains high amounts of saturated and trans fats, which can increase blood cholesterol. Cholesterol can cause fatty deposits in the blood vessels which increases the risk of stroke, peripheral artery disease, and heart disease. Plant-based foods, by nature, contain no dietary cholesterol. A diet high in fat and cholesterol can raise blood pressure, too, which also makes cardiovascular diseases more likely. 

CHKD please help us as we help ourselves, by EATING TO LIVE!!
