Keep some meatless momentum!
To the editor:
In your June 16 article, “Meatless in Seattle,” I was excited to read about the push for healthier meals in the Seattle Public Schools. I have two kids in Seattle schools, and they both complain about lack of healthy
options. When my daughter started middle school last fall, she started buying school lunch every day because the early start time left her little time for packing a lunch. She almost made it through the first semester before
telling me she could not go one more day eating cheese pizza for lunch – the one meatless option. I know it takes a bit more planning to incorporate whole grains, legumes and vegetables into a menu, but it involves creative energy that even I, a working mom, can appreciate. Let’s keep some momentum on this one, please!
