My Kid's Lunch is now offering a vegetarian option every day at select schools! Whether your student is dedicated to a vegetarian diet or you just want to incorporate more veggies in their routine, our vegetarian meals are packed with nutrient dense whole foods. We incorporate fresh organic produce from our own school gardens when possible. Concerned about your child getting enough protein? Don't be! Vegetables and fruits provide energy and protein along with health promoting nutrients such as fiber, vitamins, and minerals. With delicious options such as mac & cheese, vegetarian chile, and black bean burgers made from scratch, there's a veggie meal for even the pickiest eaters!
Vegetarian diets have proven health benefits including lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol, lower risk of cancer, and decreased inflammation. The fiber in vegetables slows the absorption of sugars in the blood stream, promoting healthy blood sugar and balanced cortisol (stress) levels. Anyone can reap some of these benefits just by swapping animal proteins for plant-based proteins a few meals per week and increasing vegetable intake.
Healthy eating habits are established at a young age. Encouraging your child to eat more vegetables now can set them up to make healthy choices for the rest of their lives. Let the tasty vegetarian lunches from My Kid's Lunch show them just how delicious their vegetables can be!
