Best of #SNIC18: Making Plant-Based Eating Doable and Desirable in K-12

On Wednesday, March 28, 2018

Americans are told they eat too much meat and experts are recommending more plant-based meals. From Meatless Mondays to Vegan Before 6 to Flexitarian, a significant percentage of consumers—led by Millennials and GenZ—are changing their diets to be more plant-focused for a variety of reasons. But are plant-based proteins nutritious and safe for growing children? This session will explore the growing trend of plant-based diets and examine nutritional adequacy in K-12, as well as visualize enticing ways to prepare veggie cuisine.
