Gen Z Most Loved Veggies

Did you know that there is an increasing preference for plant-based menus among Gen Z students? In fact, plant-based menus and more was the focus at the 2018 CIA Healthy Kids Collaborative Annual Meeting. School foodservice operators and industry members from across the country met to discuss and learn about this new trend in school meals. A lot of inspiring ideas for menu items came out of this collaboration, including some featuring Gen Z’s favorite veggie, the potato¹!

Struggling with how to menu a plant-based meal? Check out our recipes just for school operators for inspiration! If you have a plant-based or vegan potato dish that your students love, let us know! We would love to celebrate your menu creativity.
