School Nutritionist To Vegan Enforcers: ‘We Have A Right To Choose’

The school-food report cards from the radical Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) have hit an unexpected snag. Penny McConnell, food and nutrition director of the $2.1 billion Fairfax County Public School District (situated just outside our nation’s capital), told The Washington Post on Saturday that she doesn’t agree with the group’s anti-meat and anti-dairy philosophy. McConnell’s schools earned PCRM’s highest grade by serving soy milk and vegetarian entrees to kids, but the Post tells the rest of the story:

Still, McConnell said, though she ensures that there are choices for students who are vegetarian or vegan, her menus are also filled with lean meats, yogurt and low-fat cheeses. “I don’t support forcing the vegan option on every person,” McConnell said. “We have a right to choose.”
