Today, we would like to lovingly share with our dear viewers examples of how vegan meal options in schools around the world are helping to create the harmony and balance that we all pray our children will have throughout their lives. Many studies have shown that meat is an inferior source of protein compared to plant food. For example, the largest study ever done on health and nutrition, The China Study, has shown conclusively that consuming even a small amount of meat is detrimental to health. So, what is the best diet from a nutritional standpoint? Study after study in the last decades has shown that a whole food plant-based diet is the healthiest. For instance, recently in 2014, a comparative study of over 1,800 vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores by a task force involving the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) – a UN intergovernmental agency, and seven faculty members from universities in Europe concluded that the results “indicated consistently the vegan diet as the most healthy one.”
“Bringing plant-based meals to schools will help students establish healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime. Not only do these foods help students stay focused and energized in the classroom today, but they also reduce long-term risk for heart disease, type-2 diabetes, obesity, and other chronic diseases.” – Dr. Neal Barnard
Fortunately, as awareness soars across the globe about the harms of meat and dairy and the virtues of a plant-based diet, many schools have begun adding vegan options to their meal offerings. In 2006, for example, a survey of foodservice directors in the USA by the School Nutrition Association found that 5% of elementary, 6% of middle, and 10% of high schools offered vegan options. Since 2010, an exciting new “vegan school” phenomenon has also been sweeping the globe. These are private schools and preschools that do not rely on government funding and have chosen to switch to a fully vegan menu or have opened their doors as 100% plant-based schools. More than ten of these vegan schools now exist in the world, as of 2021.

今天我們將與親愛的觀眾愛心分享些許範例,看看世界各地的學校純素餐如何幫助、創造我們祈望孩子們能終生享有的和諧與平衡。許多研究均顯示,與純植物食物相比,肉食是較差的蛋白質來源。比如,有史以來規模最大的健康與營養研究,「中國調查報告」已經證明,即使攝取少量的肉食也會危害健康。那麼,從營養的角度來看,什麼才是最佳飲食呢?過去幾十年的種種研究表明,全食純植物飲食最健康。例如近年來,二○一四年時,研究小組對逾一千八百名純素者、素食者及雜食者進行了比較研究,該研究小組包括聯合國跨政府機構「國際癌症研究機構」,及歐洲各大學的七名教員,結論指出研究結果:「始終指出純素飲食最為健康。」
「將純植物食物帶進學校將幫助學生建立持續終生的健康飲食習慣。這些食物不僅可幫助學生在今日課堂中保持專注力與活力,而且也可降低罹患心臟病、第二型糖尿病、肥胖及其它慢性疾病的長期風險。」—尼爾·巴納德醫師
幸運的是,隨著全球對肉類及乳製品的危害與純植物飲食的益處意識的快速提高,許多學校開始在餐食中增加純素選擇。例如,二○○六年,學校營養協會對美國的餐飲服務主管進行了一項調查,發現五%的小學、六%的初中和十%的高中學校都有提供純素選擇。此外,自二○一○年起,振奮人心的新「純素學校」現象席捲全球。一些不依賴政府津貼的私立學校及幼稚園已經選擇改為完全純素菜單,或開設為百分之百植物飲食學校。截至二○二一年,全球有超過十家這樣的純素學校。
