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.

Soylent green. It’s people.
Vegan Nursing Mom’s Baby Dies From Malnutrition http://www.parenting.com/blogs/show-and-tell/lauren-parentingcom/vegan-nursing-moms-baby-dies-malnutrition
Me thinks someone wants precicely that result.
So now it's going to be who didn't pass gas in class. Those who don't will be identified as not eating the vegan meals and will be told to get with the program or else.
Is this a school where the kids largely eat kosher? It’s probably easier to just do a vegetarian than it is to try to keep a kosher kitchen. I don’t think it’s a big deal. If the kids want a ham sandwich, they can always pack a lunch from home.
Reminds me of the movie TOUGH GUYS in which Burt Lancaster leads a riot in an old folks home demanding ...”REAL FOOD! REAL FOOD!”
Exactly. Boys can no longer be boys and girls can no longer be girls (the puberty age gets lower and lower).
Christ cannot come back quick enough. They are destroying His little innocents.
This area is overwhelmingly black. I am unaware of any US public schools with kosher kitchens, even in NYC.
80% of NYC public school grads cannot read. But they will know their tofu. Dear Lord, help us!
Soy = poison
Eat only fermented soy.
Whenever someone tells me they are a vegan, I ask them how they get their b vitamins. So many are clueless.
You can get it from yeast ~ but if you have a problem in retaining it you need more than that ~ a daily sublingual B12 pill keeps the visions and funny stuff away!
They can't ~ but 40 years in USPS taught me to never even hear those conversations ~ she spent her whole life in a black family and never figured out what everybody at the post office knows whether they wanted to know or not.
You thought they threw a lot of food away before they tried this stupid idea. They will need to order more dumpsters to handle the additional waste.
I bet LA’s Roosevelt High School got more dumpsters along with their on-campus abortion clinic. After Gosnell walks, the fix might be in, he has a job at a High school waiting I guess.
Are the kids who bring their lunches to school going to be strip searched for contraband meat?
You misspelled “Halal”
A proper vegetarian diet is good for kids, but I wouldn’t trust a school cafeteria to provide a proper vegetarian diet.
