Houston is trying to go veg so they enlisted the help of a Nickelodeon star to recruit the kids to walk down the green path.

Daniella Monet, who starred in the network’s ‘Victorious’ made an appearance at the Gregory Lincoln Education Center to kick off Houston’s ISD’s Lean and Green effort.

“You don’t really think of vegetarian or lean and green or Meatless Monday in association with Houston,” said Monet, who became a vegetarian at age 5 and a vegan at age 13 because of her love for animals. “We are gradually moving in a direction that is more health conscious and this is a natural progression and I’m excited to be part of the initial stages of it, and kids seem excited.”

So excited that some of them even said they might change their diets from meat eating to good old veggies.

“I might try, ‘cause they seem like they have some interesting food options,” said Joseph Farney, a seventh-grader.

HISD kicked off the Lean and Green program a month ago, adhering to Meatless Mondays, serving no meat in the cafeteria once a week. The students have a garden they tend to and showed it to Monet, who said now that they have all the information, it’s up to them to make the right choices.
