One New York City public elementary school is kissing meat goodbye, as its adopted a 100 percent full-fledged vegetarian menu, NY1 reports.

The Queens Public School 244 cafeteria’s meatless menu evolved over time. It’s not something officials decided on their own, as they took parents thoughts and opinions into consideration.

NY1 spoke with some of the students about the veggie change and one said, “When you’re healthy you can do better on tests, and you can fight more diseases.”

Another student added, “It’s green so it can make your eyes better, and it can also help your muscles to become stronger, and it also has a lot of protein, not a lot of sugar.”

According to CBS News, P.S. 244 started serving vegetarian lunches three times a week, and then bumped it up to four. The rest is history.

“We believe that, if we taught kids to make healthy choices, it would help them to grow as students and well-rounded children,” Robert Groff, the school’s principal, said.

This is the first NYC school to officially cutting out meat, and might even be the first in the nation.
