doglover: The problem with the proper vegetarian diet isn't that it lacks in any way the necessities of life. And skipping meat once a day never hurt anyone.The main problem, and the reason vegans should be unwelcome in your home, even as emissaries of a friendly king, is that VEGETABLES ARE NOT MEAT AND YOU CAN'T SUBSTITUTE THEM FOR IT NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO YOU STUPID farkING ASSHOLES!
RodneyToady: Yes, because if you're not eating meat at every single meal, you're going to stunt your growth.

The last time I had a vegan over for dinner (and we had agreed to cook an all vegan dinner) I stood in my kitchen blinking in complete silence for about an hour when I realized I couldn't use butter.
J. Frank Parnell: Carnivores produce vitamin c within their bodies to make up for what they don't get in their diets, but humans rely entirely on their diet to get it.
vpb: Wow! There's some powerful derp here.I an not a herbivore, but I know enough about nutrition to know that you can get all the protein and fat you need from plants. You may not enjoy it, but it can be done.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Fun Dumpster: I'll stay away from the normal meat vs veggie derp, but I'd be curious to see how this public school manages to maintain this when school budgets in New York are already stretched to the breaking point. Where are they finding the funding to continuously bring in the full veggie menu. What quality of produce do they intend to use? I understand that there may be some economy of scale at play, but how are they able to make a nutritionally viable meal on the traditionally meager budget assigned to school lunches?I'm assuming they're going to be using a lot of refined grains and processed soy instead of fresh, local, seasonal produce. Which is a shame, if true.
J. Frank Parnell: Protein does play a role in childhood development, but i'd wager it's better for a child to get plenty of vitamins and nutrients and just a little protein, than it is for them to get lots of protein and very little vitamins, which is what most children's diets are these days. Just shoveling meat and 'junk food' into their mouths constantly, leading to the bizarre modern phenomenon of people who are obese AND malnourished.
