The California assembly has approved a resolution on vegetarian options in school lunches (it now goes to the state senate). And not a moment too soon: Veggie-oriented students are multiplying, from USC college kids all the way down to vegan preschoolers, and many in between, like this college-graduating 13-year-old. Even in traditonal lunchrooms, regular-kid trends are interesting: "We looked at what foods kids are actually taking and actually throwing away,' school board member Bob Stranger said. "We found they ate a lot of peas,' Stranger said. "Peaches and peas were a heavily consumed item -- whereas often with the corndogs and hotdogs -- that's another story."
