Hot dogs and hamburgers are the most popular foods for kids to have on Memorial Day, which is fine if those are things kids eat once a week. But studies show kids are eating red meat several times a week and consumption has gone up, not down. This despite all of the studies that show moderate red meat consumption can be a cause of weight gain and hardening of the arteries, to say nothing of the health of the planet.
Meatless Mondays is one such organization that encourages eating meat-free at least one day a week. I would take that a lot further and encourage eating meat only once a week and legumes, soy, and other high protein healthy foods six days a week. It will only help the health of your family, and that of the planet.
