“I agree, I've been vegan much of my life and for much was still overweight. It's easy to be obese on a vegan diet.

He's just cashing in on existing food trends and going for money.”

“sounds like Bittman has found a great way to cash in and commercialise other people's lifestyles. Should have had a subtitle: The Unethical Vegan

Just going to dilute and make people that are using the word 'vegan' even harder since he's promoting a flexitarian diet. But as long as he cashes in for his retirement plan.”

“I get my protein from a balanced diet, from raw spouted brown rice protein powders, to legumes, nuts, tofu, et al. I have too much in a day if I was being strict. People's individual choices make them obese not public departments. That's why an education like this is good.”

“I susect you have a strange understanding of protien.  All vegetable protein assimilation is astonishingly high, 98.5% is higher than some meats.  Also, you don't need 100% protein in your diet - you need a sustainable balance of it with other nutrients.  Kids under 8 only need 19grams a day. That is very easy to eat over on a balanced vegetarian diet.

Even the USDA says about a vegan or vegetarian diet: "Protein has many important functions in the body and is
essential for growth and maintenance. Protein needs can easily be met
by eating a variety of plant-based foods. Combining different protein
sources in the same meal is not necessary. "

It's not about the density of nutrition, it's about how you eat in a balanced and sustainable way every day.”

“List the Veg protein you are so familiar with.  a protein analysis listed on a label does not mean it can be assumed.   USDA?  what do they have to do with nutrition?  Just look at the obesity numbers.”

“It is better that they fail and we learn from that, than never trying for the next generation - we're failing the current generation of children.

“Iron isn't hard to absorb from plants?  90% of your daily iron comes from plant based sources (even if you're a meat eater).  You can absorb more iron from meat, but there is no evidence that you need all of that.

You absorb what you body needs, non-haem iron (plant) might actually do you favours in that you don't get too much (iron is linked to many health conditions)

The biggest factor of how much iron you absorb is what else is in your stomach.

 Yes you need Vit C with either plant or meat iron to absorb it and bond it to your haemoglobin.”

“isn't the better goal to educate children that food doesn't have to look like junk-food. Children really shouldn't get to eat what they want, it's nutrition not entertainment. If they grow up with salads, they'll eat salads later on in life.”

“I think also, it's not saying you have to be a vegetarian to go to this school. This is a sensible way to balance out the nutritional needs of children across their whole diet. Nevermind, the positive long term food habits they will develop from an early age.”

“What do you mean vegetable protien is not as absorbable as meat? That' is the silliest thing I've heard in a long time. You can absorb up to 98.5% of some vegetable protiens which is much higher than meat.

You also don't get all the negative health effects of red-meat that are very well documented as well.”

“Unfortunately, that 'some' is only a small percent of vegetable protein that is easily absorbed.   ”

“I think they're talking about iron. Since iron derived from plants ARE harder to absorb, it's always good to eat something with Vitamin C (orange or strawberries) with your meal. Vit C helps your body to absorb the iron.”

“what negative effects? Health and wellbeing? What a silly thing to say.

Yes a alot of children don't get enough to eat at home, but contrary to that, what they do eat lacks nutrition and basic common health-sense. A few extra meals of salads and vegetables will only balance and improve their development - this is not suggesting kids at this school have to be 'vegan' in what parts of their life.

I agree there are really only there is alot of confusion of the terms. Vegans should only eat a plant-based diet. Vegetarians are defined as being lacto-ovo - they might eat dairy and eggs. Everyone is else is not a vegetarian, they are omnivores.

They are not 'compromising' btw, they're making their own individual choices. Everyone has a right to eat what they want.”
