NEW YORKA New York City public elementary school has adopted an all-vegetarian menu, serving kids tofu wraps and veggie chili.
Public School 244 is the first public school in the city to go all-veggie. The animal-welfare group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says it might be the first all-veggie public elementary school in the nation.
Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott says he's proud of the "trailblazing" school. He ate the new food with children on Tuesday.

Indoctrination by any other name.
All hail his imperious excellency, Benito Bloomberg, blessed be his name... Blaaaaaah
It aint real government school without “mystery meat!”.
Those kids will have so much flatulence that “Flushing” is an appropriate name for the place.
An all vegetarian diet is very dangerous for young children; don’t these people care? No of course not. Liberal psychopaths just always want what they want when they want it which is always now and the rest of us can drop dead for all they care.
How are they going to avoid the malnutrition lawsuits? Are they going to hand out vitamin supplements with every meal? If they do, will they expell students for handing them to eachother like they do with aspirin?
Let’s hear it for “pink slime”.
A vegetarian diet for any high school kid on a sports team (volleyball to football)....won’t work, and the kid will have to sneak either peanut butter or ham sandwiches into his locker to survive.
My personal bet is that they do it for twelve months and then admit that kids are throwing out most everything.
I would also suggest that if they simply worked up a decent stew (with chicken, turkey or beef), tossed an apple onto the plate, and added a roll....it’d be enough to make most kids happy.
You simply cannot get B vitamins from a vegan diet. It is not healthy for humans.
Easier to get the tykes accustomed to Soylent Green.
What, they’re not promoting a Mediterrean diet? Such bigotry against Italians and Greeks!
Tofu (and soy beans), made of soy beans, have been recommended to us gals going through “the stage” to help combat it’s side effects.
Tofu = soy beans = girly stuff.
From what I have researched, it is recommended that a gal NOT eat TOO much of it.
Once I concluded my study (on my own...no I am not a doctor), I stay as FAR away from this crap as possible.
Now they are shoving it down the throats of our little ones.
They are condemning every chil' in the school with the slightest intestinal absorption problem with mental illness and an early death.
Having read the whole article, and knowing something about nutrition, I would say these diets are higher in vitamins and minerals than most cafeteria diets. They are also not lacking in protein content.
Didn’t Moochelle Obama try something like this in LA?
but lets not eat those hamburgers...
Cults will cut off animal protein.
Apparently it makes people more susceptible to ideas and easier to control.
