My nine year old vegan brother has decided to stand up and make a change for other children who share the same views. Many children are vegan or have celiac disease. The vegan and gluten free foods are healthier options and provide the children with more nutrients than the junk food the schools currently have. It's a great way to bring awareness to veganism and the beneficial impacts it has on our bodies and our planet. My younger brother went vegan at 8, and he has to pack his lunch every day. Sometimes the morning gets busy and packing lunch gets to be a pain. It would be awesome to see every child's diet accommodated in schools. He plans to send this petition as well as a nicely written letter to the board of education bringing this issue to their attention. He appreciates the help and hopes you can all pass this on to your family and friends!

Offer vegan and gluten free snack options to the students. Not only will that accommodate more diets, it will also encourage better health. Children have no healthy food options at school, and it's about time we focus on what our kids put into their bodies. After all, they are growing so fast and need the proper nutrients to do so.
