Teenage obesity is a growing problem. Indiana is ranked 10th in the nation for obesity, which puts people at great risk for heart disease, stroke, & diabetes. Vegetarian/Vegan options in the lunch room can cost no more than the normal lunch junk food.
Many students get the majority of their daily nutrition from the school cafeteria, why not give them a healthy alternative. Keep kids energized, focused, & full longer than the nuntrient deprived french fries & potato chips.
The rest of the world is going green, why aren't our schools?
