Require schools to increase plant-based lunch options
Many school lunches revolve around processed meat or dairy based options. Plant based meals are rare, if available at all.
The Government should reform school food standards to require schools to make a variety of plant based meal options available on a daily basis.
Meat and dairy products are often unhealthier and have a significantly higher carbon footprint than plant based equivalents.
Younger people need to become more comfortable with plant based equivalents as it becomes increasingly important to move towards more sustainable living.
It is difficult for children to avoid meat or dairy based products without calling out their specific dietary requirements. This, despite it being thought that up to 75% of people are affected by lactose intolerance.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
